Culinary Class Creativity at HS


Three “Chef’s Choice” classes at the high school, guided by family and consumer sciences teacher Heidi Kissinger, participated in the school’s second annual “Chopped” competition on Jan. 22. Students prepared different dishes to display their culinary skills and creativity, which were then served to volunteer faculty judges.

The first-period winners, for their dish of fried chicken and waffles with homemade maple gravy, were Emily Berger, Maddy Edwards, Nicole Saggio and Melissa Schulman. Third-period winners Julia De Santis, Kim Donahue, Kassidy Mullins and Gianna Pugliese gained victory with a dish of chicken fajitas with avocado fries. In the eighth-period contest, Josh Fix and Dakota Shay emerged victorious after preparing taco pizza with homemade corn salsa.
