Furture Chef 2015
Elementary students from Avalon and Bellevue learned the importance of healthy eating while honing their culinary skills thanks to student nutrition provider Sodexo and their Future Chefs: Healthy Snack Challenge. The national program, which is in its fifth year and part of Sodexo’s commitment to promoting well-being in support of achievement, was created to get students thinking about making healthy food choices. Students took on the challenge by submitting twenty-eight recipes that were judged on: Originality, kid friendly, ease of preparation and healthy attributes. Of the twenty-eight students, six challengers were chosen; Emma DeSimone making Emma’s Sweet and Sassy Dips, Ethyn Firestone making his Apple Cookie, Ryan Geeting and his Banana Sushi, Jayden Mills and her Protein Dip with Apples, Lyla Savruk’s Strawberry Smoothie and Marissa Walker’s Crunchy Parfait. The six finalists had to prepare and present their creations before a panel of celebrity judges that included Mrs. Nancy Silay, Chefs Sean Conley and Mike Cope owners of Tallulah’s Catering in Etna and Chef Joe Elbicki from Joe’s Rusty Nail in Bellevue. .....Read More
