French classes at Serra and Mercy held a "Chopped" contest where a Mercy and Serra student were paired as chef teams to make, with a variety of ingredients, a mixed salad, 2 quiches, and crepes.
It was a fast paced fun afternoon. For many, kitchen skills were tested to the max, as others, learned (the hard way) the difference between a cucumber and a zucchini...one pair ended up with only one egg to make a quiche, and burned bacon, but in the end they all persevered and made tasty edible dishes!
The dishes were judged by French teachers Ms. Dowden and Ms. Barthe as well as one student. Special thanks to all who participated. Top winners of the day included First place Chefs Itzel Velasquez and Luke Besse!
