This week's recipes challenged the student's personal taste limits. The chicken's blend of spices and ingredients were unlike anything the students had ever eaten. Overall, the comments were positive. I heard several say that this was the best week of the program. No one thought that the chicken was too spicy as I had anticipated, but the cinnamon bothered some as did the sweetness of the apricots. Some deemed the strawberries as being too sweet in the shortcake recipe. All of the students liked the texture and flavor of the biscuits. This week there were no leftovers to take home or share with bystanders. The students ate all of it!
