Onga Cook Art: A new initiative to nurture the next generation of culinary experts

A new initiative by the Ghana Education Service in partnership with Onga dubbed Onga Cook Art is set to grow the next generation of culinary greats in Ghana. Onga Cook Art is a national cooking contest among senior high schools across the country. The competition, which took the team across the length and breath of the country, saw over 150 Senior High Schools competing for the ultimate prize. The maiden edition of the contest came to a successful end with Archbishop Porter’s Girls emerging as winners of the contest. Brand manger for Onga, Mrs. Linda Nartey, expressed her delight in the partnership with the Ghana Education Service in executing the event. “The future looks promising for Onga Cook Art. One of the areas we will be exploring is how to make culinary subjects taught in schools more practical to the students. Together with the leadership of GES, we can organize professional training and internships for some contestants and students in well-established hotels, restaurants and other practical culinary institutions. We believe the next generation of great chefs and culinary expert will come from this program,” Mrs. Nartey said.
