American Chef: Road Trip-- Friday




Home again, home again – right back to Center County. After Natalie and Catherine gave out the final tests, The American Chef: Road Trip! program ended today, the way many kids spend their weekend or holiday mornings- eating muffins and watching a cartoon. Only this cartoon was a short called ‘The True Cost Of Food’ and showed how a family could benefit by supporting their local farmer’s market. Chef did a blueberry muffin and pizza making demo and assigned various recipes to the campers that needed to be completed. The campers made their own pizzas and some very unusual dishes were created. Kory and Ben made a pizza topped with corn! There was a pesto, ham and ricotta pizza, some with vegetables, pineapple, bacon, sausage and many versions of the traditional sauce, cheese and pepperoni.

As the clock ticked toward noon, the pace in the lab quickened. There was no time for wii and DDR today! There were chef hats to make, name cards to write, and many, many dishes of leftovers from the Road Trip to heat, garnish and identify. Punch bowls were filled, plates and napkins distributed. As parents and siblings gathered outside the door, chef went over an etiquette presentation about what to expect during the event and then at noon the door burst open and the room filled with families eager to taste what they had heard about all week.

Once everyone had a glass of Apple-Cider-Raspberry Shrub Punch or Strawberry Lemonade and something to eat, certificates were given for all the hard work and demonstrations of the wii and DDR took place. As the parents began to leave, the lab became a relaxed atmosphere… well until next year anyway!
