Students in the Kids in the Kitchen summer school class at MPES/Quest held their 2nd annual Food Showcase today. The students showcased the skills that they have learned in class by preparing and serving the guests in attendance. The featured menu item was grilled cheese! They made rainbow grilled cheese and Italian grilled cheese as well as a marinara dipping sauce. It smelled delicious and tasted even better! Congratulations on a well-attended and successful event.
