KHS culinary students receive on-site restaurant training
Students in the Kecoughtan High School Introduction to Culinary Arts class recently visited Uno Pizzeria and Grill to receive hands-on knowledge in the food service industry.
Students had the opportunity to tour the kitchen, watch dough being made and talk with the managers. General manager Al Hughes and assistant manager Courtney Tanner answered questions about food costs, the most popular menu items, and how they obtained their start working in the restaurant. As a culminating activity, students were allowed to make their own pizza.
“This was a great opportunity for our students to see what they can expect if they plan to further their education after high school in the culinary field,” shared culinary arts teacher Valerie Wolfe.
