King Arthur Bake Truck Visit {Real Hands-on Experience outside the Classroom}

IMG_2425

The King Arthur Bake Truck rolled into AHS today. I am privileged to partner with such a dynamic baking company. This is our second year working with an amazing team who sends us flour to help the needy through the Bake for Good Program
Because the Bake truck was already in Asheville visiting Ingles and Earthfares stores, we were fortunate to borrow Kathy and Amelia for a couple of hours. I’m at awe at the number of months they travel throughout the year through hot and cold weather.

Our foods 1 students enjoyed the visit, especially sampling the homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

The foodservice oven is climbing to the correct temperature. The ladies informed me the cookies had to be rotated since they were parked on a ramp. We watched them as they moved trays around and gave students the royal treatment inside.
