Greetings from Ann Arbor Public Schools Food Service!
December’s theme is “Spice it Up!” and we’ll be featuring ethnic foods and spices from around the world.
At lunchtime on Dec. 14, we’ll host a Discovery Kitchen event, serving Dry Rubbed Wings at Scarlet Middle School featuring five types of sauces from across the globe.
“As we move forward into 2023, I will be scheduling two different Discovery Kitchen events per month that will be held at two different locations on the same day,” says Mike Devries, an assistant director for dining at Chartwells. “We will make our way to each building by the end of the school year.”
“We also decided to visit one school per week next semester so we can get to every building by the end of the year with at least one Discovery Kitchen event.”
The themes are as follows:
January: Great American Road Trip
February: Smart Snacking
March: Plant Power
April: Waste Warrior
May/June: Summer Fun
Also as promised, Chartwells will hold a gingerbread house contest for the month of December. Each school’s food service team will be provided with materials to build a single gingerbread house beginning the week of Dec. 5. Then each school will have about a week to construct and display the house somewhere your team and students can admire. Judging will take place on December 20th and 21st. The top three winning teams will be announced on Dec 22nd. Prizes will be awarded.
