Colchester Middle School has five young 6th grade chefs competing in the upcoming Jr. Iron Chef Competition at the Expo in Essex on Saturday, March 21. They have been practicing different dishes like sandwiches, salads, and breakfast each week and have adapted a recipe for Colchester Cougar Corn Chowder served with Parmesan Crisps and Garlic Herb Crostini. The group has sourced local products whenever possible. The team has learned basic food safety, preparation, and teamwork over the course of the year. They are excited about the upcoming competition. Their chowder will also be served at the upcoming CMS family/community night on March 27, 2015.
