Knife Skills and Garnishing Week

Foods 2 was busy practicing with knives this week.

Every student used a chef knife and paring knife.

Students practiced items that were on their test, like garnishing salads with croutons, garnishing sandwiches with pickles on the side.


Everyone’s favorite is plate painting.

I break out the spiralizer and we make some shoestring potatoes in the fryer.

Omar is definitely liking his.

Even if they don’t make it picture perfect, it’s worth the challenge.



Garnishing day is a big hit with a variety of tools and foods to choose from.
