Chef folk has been teaching Serve Safe for Marshfield High School since September, and also gives delicious food demos every other day for the students. Baked Alaska, Mousse Cake, Clam Chowder, Bouillabaisse are just a few items the students have learned to make. The students had a special trip to OCCI where they took a tour of the school, and had a special 5 course meal provided by Chefs Table Maddie Cutts, Brittney Cummings ( That’s Me), and Special guest Chef Folck. The meal was a great hit; The kids licked their plates clean. We had many comments that the meal was one of the best yet.
