PVYSC Caters for Weld County Judges
The honorable judges at Weld County Judicial District 6 were treated to a lunch prepared by the youth in the culinary catering program at Platte Valley Youth Services Center last week. The youth were able to apply what they learned through the programs grocery store and budgeting curriculum to feed approximately 20 people for 80 dollars. After creating a shopping list for the event, the youth learned how to cost out the plates per person. The project was facilitated by Dustin Tallman, who introduced the youth to budget and plate costing; giving them a basis of knowledge to build from in their futures, either in the restaurant business or providing and feeding a family meal in their homes.
So what was on the menu for this delicious and cost-calculated meal? The youth prepared and served: a mixed greens salad with balsamic vinaigrette, homemade alfredo and marinara sauces over fettuccine noodles, Italian marinated chicken breast, and Italian sausage with sauteed tri-colored peppers. All this was topped off with a butterscotch trifle for dessert.
