Everyone liked the beef stew, but a few of our students thought it needed something. Riley Brown said it needed a bit more salt; Bibeta Nana suggested that hot sauce would do the trick; Selena Rivera though it needed a touch of something sweet. All great suggestions that add to the flavor and complexity of a dish. It’s rewarding to see our students using their most important cooking tools – their minds and their palates! Everyone was surprised that the healthy yogurt ranch dressing tasted so much like the store-bought version that they love.
