Asheville City Schools Chef Ambassadors Sharpening Their Skills

Tropical apples, beef nachos with homemade cheese sauce, parmesan broccoli, taco cups and sweet potato salad!

No; this isn't off the menu of a hip new downtown restaurant! It's a sneak peek at what our students will be eating this school year!

Asheville City’s School Nutrition Department spent July 23rd - 25th participating in an intensive training program with K-12 Culinary Institute. The regional workshop is designed to teach our Chef Ambassadors techniques and new recipes that will be used to enhance the district’s breakfast and lunch offering.

The program has been funded in part by a U.S. Department of Agriculture Professional Standards Training Grant received by the North Carolina Department of Public Instructions’ School Nutrition Staff.
