I am proud of my first Food Art 11 class for putting on such a spectacular and intimate dinner for their peers and for some friends of Food Art 11. Students created their own recipes after being randomly assigned a particular course for our holiday meal. With little direction, they came up with the beautiful pieces you see here with very little top-down direction from me. Yes, at times it was messy and unpredictable – but did they figure out things for themselves? You bet. What you see here is the end result and everyone is happy. There definitely were some bumps along the way and we learned how to adapt together. As Mr. Tong usually says – “…such is life.”
