Two students in the San Marcos High School (SMHS) culinary arts class recently took first place last week in a cooking challenge.

On Oct. 13, at the St. Phillip’s Culinary Arts Competition in San Antonio, Timothy Saldan and Issac Villalobos won top honors with their recipe and presentation of “Hot Tropical Fruit Salsa.”

Culinary arts instructor Denise O’Grady has the recipe posted on her web site for readers who would like to try making it for themselves. “Hot Tropical Fruit Salsa” can be found at http://www.smcisd.net/webpages/dogrady/index.cfm.
