Café Day-
Last week brought special guest Chef Michael Anthony, of restaurants Gramercy Tavern and Untitled at the Whitney, to our school to share his passion for fresh seasonal ingredients. He and his team lead the students through an exploration of the qualities of sweet potatoes, their taste, and how they grow, and he encouraged the students to participate by making observations about them. The children got to sample a sweet potato chip (crispy and delicious) topped with a dollop of a sweet potato dip made with ricotta cheese (creamy and smooth). Chef Mike has shared his fabulous recipe with us, see below.

Potato Labs- 

If you noticed the smell of potatoes roasting in the school hallways, you may have followed your nose to the fifth floor cooking room where Wellness in the Schools (WITS) chef Lauren and I taught potato labs during the first week of March. We led the discovery of how delicious roast potatoes can be while discussing how they benefit our bodies with fiber and vitamins. Students declared them to be “the best potatoes ever!”  and everyone was looking forward to trying potatoes again when they appear on the school lunch menu: April 4th wedge roast potatoes and on April 5th Seasoned roasted sweet potatoes.
