The Child Nutrition team is learning knife skills that will help create new elevated, healthy recipes, implement more vegetables, and flavorful side dishes that will give a better presentation of food to students during breakfast and lunch. Ingenious Culinary Concepts brought in their Chief Innovator, Kern Hall, and Chef Warren DeShields to refresh our cooks' skills and teach new recipes that will enhance the flavors in our kitchen and kick off the school year.
