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.

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.
