More than 350 cafeteria managers and staff members attended this session featuring Chef and cooking instructor Ann Butler, owner of Edible Education, to learn essential it is to not just make food that tastes great — it has to look great, too.
“I want everyone to know, especially cafeteria manages and staff members, that getting kids to eat real food entails presenting it beautifully,” Butler explains. “It’s not hard. In fact, it’s a great way to get creative and have fun. And, best of all, you see the payoff immediately because start gravitating to the work you’ve done. It’s incredibly rewarding.”
