Junior Chef of the Month: Madison

a person holding a sign

Madison is in her 3rd semester, so she’s been with us from the beginning of our offsite semester program.  Madison always pays attention to detail and wants to fully understand the recipe before cooking.  She is a great helper, this week she showed a new student the ropes of washing hands, following rules, and making her feel welcome.  Madison would really like to learn how to make chocolate mousse.  She comes in excited and ready to work each week.  It has been a joy to watch her cook and grow in her culinary skills and confidence as she masters each weeks recipe.
