Knife Skills Workshop
Students in grades 7 and 8 had the opportunity to learn from three professional chefs from Local Public Eatery. The chefs introduced some basic knife skills and then split the students into three groups. Each group practiced using knives safely and effectively as they cut tomatoes, cilantro, and onions to make salsa. Each group then had the opportunity to spice their salsa to their own liking using salt, cayenne pepper, garlic, and other seasonings. Finally, the students got to taste-test and compare the different groups’ recipes. They were all delicious!
