From the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' blog "Stone Soup" here is a post about our recent training day "A Chefs Challenge". As noted, motivation to serve healthier, tastier food may come from not only wanting to do the best for student customers but also from working with guest chefs and stepping outside our comfort zone.
The competition created a recipe that has since been tested with students and served at our local Farmers Market Chef's Tent. The recipe was tweaked for ease of preparation and evaluated for nutrition targets. It will be on next year's school menu.
