On Dec. 19, students in Willowbrook’s culinary 3 catering course took their first-semester final exam, which consisted of a unique opportunity to create dishes from throughout the world.

The chefs made food items from Brazil, Thailand and France. Through the experience, they acquired the skills to master techniques such as stewing, pan fry, roasting and more, as well as how to properly use a cooking knife to dice, mince and slice. They also learned key terms such as water bath, fork-tender, al dente, emulsify and more. Staff members served as judges, and students were evaluated on safety and sanitation, food production, presentation and taste/texture.
