It has been an exciting year so far with some great changes to the program. The Food for Thought Program has now taken over the classroom.
Liz Varvaro is now teaching Culinary Arts, Baking and International Cooking as well as continuing the Chef.0 Internship program! We have officially taken over the culinary department and we are thrilled to showcase our talented Chef Andy’s skills to more students through a classroom setting.
This school year marks a full decade of bringing delicious, from-scratch meals to our students, staff and community. We look forward to the new educational opportunities ahead and inspiring a larger group of students in the Culinary Arts.
