The Glendale High School CTE Culinary program students collaborated with Ms. Carnewal's Art class, and created some amazing edible artwork!
Art students drew their designs, and the culinary students stepped in and brought the drawings to life in dessert form! Nice work!
Hoover High School Culinary Pathway students participated in the Great Steak-Off and worked in teams to cook their own steak recipes! The competition was judged by Hoover High School Administrators. Their food looks delicious!
