School Daze-The Ultimate Taste Test

Here's an article from the local paper on step two in the recipe development to cycle menu journey for school lunches:  School Lunches Put to the Test

Guest chefs and cafeteria staff started with a Chefs Challenge to create new dishes (see blog post from March 12, 2014 ) and now students taste tested the recipes - the ultimate taste test.  Jamaican Jerk Chicken over Brown Rice was a winner and some other dishes received constructive comments.

The next steps in the journey include locating affordable ingredients from suppliers, analyzing and adjusting the recipe for nutrition targets, fine tuning recipe instructions, photographing what the final product should like it, fitting it into the cycle menu and demonstrating it for cafeteria managers.
