The South Bryant Thanksgiving Dinner gave
students, community and Metro Tech staff the chance to be served by the Culinary Arts students and enjoy a meal that was prepared by the Culinary Arts students. The meal was $9.95 for a buffet style dinner of cranberry salsa, roasted pork loin, turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, corn on the cob, macaroni and cheese, salad with vinaigrette, and several types of dessert. We put a lot of time and effort to making sure it was one of the best meals ever tasted. It took students three days to prepare the meal. My favorite part of this whole experience was preparing and setting up the dishes, something I have never done on such a large scale.
Something else I have never done was show high school students what we do in Culinary Arts. A couple other students,Alexa and Yessina, and I created a couple of garnishment displays. We used carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers, lemons, oranges, cucumbers, and green apples. They looked fabulous! It was nice to show future Metro Tech students what Culinary Arts is all about.
