Chef Victor shares more than just a recipe

GiftsToGive_Sorority_2_October21-2014_6-M Sixteen young women from our Normandin Middle School Sorority, spent two hours after school on Tuesday, with Executive Chef Victor Vieira.

Chef Victor brought $33.22 worth of groceries and demonstrated how to make two meals for five people that are not only nutritional but scrumptious! He talked to our young women about the food cost, engaging them in a math quiz for per-person servings comparing that to fast-food meals.

Talk about a service learning experience! Conversation abounded about how carrots are grown, the benefits of celery, we even learned that a part of the chicken is called an oyster! Chef talked about the different fats, comparing the meals that were being cooked and the fat content and types in processed food.
