Thanksgiving Bliss = preparing and serving a Thanksgiving meal to 200 of our closest classmates and teachers, most of whom I have a feeling skipped breakfast. But it was a special moment to watch our Culinary Arts students roll with the last minute changes and crowds of people wondering what was going to happen next. Lately I’ve been noticing this “what will happen next state” as not only the justifiable state of mind of a teenager, but also the state of mind for most of us in today’s world. Adaptability is now more important an attribute to have under one’s belt than ever before. Our Culinary Arts students showed how well they can adapt, and with eagerness.
Some quotes from them as they were serving:
“I want to do this for real”
“I love the smiles from people when you give them something good to eat.”
All that and more. There was a great write up in the San Francisco Chronicle about our program – THANK YOU EVERYONE who helped make that happen! As a result, we are now getting an increased interest in our job shadowing/ internship program from restaurants, hotels and caterers, which is very exciting. Now if only we can adapt as quickly as our students!
