Under the direction of Chef Mark Bragg, our Culinary students celebrated Fat Tuesday this past week with many traditional New Orlean's style cuisines, including Shrimp & Grits, Gumbo, & Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. They demonstrated tableside plating in the dining room to accommodate for this week's block scheduling due to ISTEP testing. These students are doing an awesome job working so hard to learn new recipes and serve up gourmet dishes!
Last week they also had the opportunity to practice with and prepare many different vegetarian dishes, which has been a request from our staff recently. The WACC office had the opportunity to sample these entrees, which included a portabella mushroom burger with creamed spinach & parmesan cheese, eggplant involtini with ricotta cheese, grilled veggie skewers with couscous, and a honey-glazed carrot dish with rice. Great job to our 1st-year culinary students!
