MEXICO – Students enrolled in the Culinary Arts program at the Center for Instruction, Technology & Innovation have not wasted any time getting hands-on experience in the kitchen.
The Career and Technical Education students applied lessons learned from instructors, sous chef Samuel Passer and Chef Sue Jerrett, during their preparation of salads, ham and turkey sandwiches and cookies for State Sen. Patty Ritchie’s Oswego County Senior Health and Wellness Fair on Sept. 21 at the Fulton Community Ice Arena.
There, students helped serve the food, replenished food and drinks and offered friendly smiles and conversation with attendees.
The aspiring chefs used knowledge gained and teamwork skills to assemble another 1,400 lunches for a similar event in Jefferson County on Oct. 19.
All Culinary Arts students were involved in the lunch preparations.
