The Blue Apron is a student-run full-service restaurant, open Tuesday & Wednesday from 11:00 – 1:00 pm.
In the French cuisine, the color of an apron worn by the staff denotes the level of mastery. The Blue Apron is known for “student in training.” Our students are receiving both high school and college credit while enrolled in the program.
Peggy Roulo came to visit the Advanced Culinary Arts students in the Blue Apron today, to teach them a few tips & techniques about what she's learned over the years as "The Cake Lady" of Warsaw. She not only shared her cake decorating skills, but also talked about the business aspect of her life & the importance of building relationships with customers.
The Warsaw Area Career Center truly appreciates the time Peggy spends investing into our students!
Utilizing seven different ways to make pumpkin bread, Culinary students experimented using healthier ingredients and recipes. With only 1 recipe containing the typical ingredients, six other recipes were used to make healthier options like gluten free, cholesterol free, egg free and low fat. After these were all created they then got to do some taste testing. YUM! Starting with the healthier options first, they then made their way through all seven to the typical ingredient version last. This experiment proved that to most when not tasting something packed with the sugars first and instead substituting with healthier ingredients they taste the same!
Students of the Warsaw Area Career Center's own Blue Apron Restaurant served lunch to some of our WCHS and Central Office staff yesterday and today during their "soft openings" or "practice runs" before preparing to open later this month. On Tuesday staff had the option to choose from a limited menu while today they were served a three course meal including a special of Chicken Parmesan. These students have been working very hard to not only finalize the restaurant's menu but also practice and perfect each recipe. Special thanks to our Chef Bragg for teaching and encouraging these students to run such a wonderful restaurant! Stay tuned for the announcement of our official opening date!
