On our last student day of school, both culinary classes hosted a special tasting lunch for the Family & Consumer Science teachers to enjoy. Chef Bragg's students teamed up to serve multiple courses and then were judged on the dishes they prepared. The menu included spicy breaded chicken, salad, pasta, and many types of cheesecake. Everything looked delicious and the students did such a wonderful job with everything they served to our teachers!
