HAS Students: The Next Iron Chefs?
High School students at Highland Adventist School in Elkins recently took a culinary field trip. The students spent a day at a commercial kitchen to learn the basics of cooking and baking. After learning how to make biscuits, pie, and bread, the students formed teams and competed cook-off style to make the tastiest pasta dish using a pre-determined list of ingredients.
"The students really had a great time," stated Cheryl Jacko, principal. "We feel it is very important for our students to take a little time from their academic studies to learn about basic life skills like cooking, to help them in their transition into adult life. All of our high school students participated in this trip and had a great time."
