Hawai‘i Community College hosted the 16th Annual Hilo Culinary Classic on Friday, April 4. Students worked long and hard to prepare their entries for this culinary competition, and the hard work was evident in their excellent displays. Many family members and community members attended to view the displays and dine on heavy pupus prepared by the first-year Culinary Arts students. As always, it was a great event!
