The Warsaw Area Career Center & Chef Bragg's Culinary students would like to extend sincere thanks to Mr. Ronald Boyd for sharing his knowledge, wisdom, & expertise with the art of fileting & frying fish! Ron took time out of his busy schedule to not only catch all of these fish, but to also expand our culinary students fish fileting/frying skills. Today, Mr. Boyd will fry the rest of the fish for the WACC staff for dinner during Parent-Teacher Conferences. We are so grateful that he does this every year for our students and staff!

Chef Bragg's Advanced Culinary students are preparing for the opening of their restaurant, the Blue Apron, by practicing with different cheesecake recipes. Students not only prepared Oreo cheesecake & a traditional New York style cheesecake, but also tried various toppings, decorations, & stylings with raspberry coulis, chocolate syrups, mint leaves (from our WACC Courtyard Garden!), and whipped cream. They all looked delicious & beautiful!
