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.
Special thanks to all of the sponsors, volunteers, parents, and staff members who helped make last evening possible. Congratulations & great job to all of our Warsaw FFA members! Best of luck at the Indiana FFA State Convention at Purdue in June!
On Thursday, students had the opportunity to choose an enrichment workshop that they were interested in. Check out the pictures below from several classes in the WACC: no-bake cookies in the Foods lab with Miss Bassett, Dutch Blitz with Mrs. Lancaster, & Board Games with Mr. Zakaria & Mrs. Campbell.
Recently in Food Science, the students baked 6 cakes using 6 different leavening agents to see which one worked the best. Then, they measured the heights their cakes rose and, of course, did some taste testing.
