RIVERDALE, Ga. -- Students in the culinary arts program at Charles Drew High School were honored when they got the opportunity to cook for Gov. Nathan Deal and 300 legislators.
The students at the Riverdale school prepared appetizers for the Georgia Restaurant Association's Taste of Georgia event on Feb. 19.
Drew High's budding chefs made pan-seared scallops on sour cream- and tarragon-spread crostini with basil and sweet pepper oils.
"Many people said that the scallops were the best dish of the night and that they were cooked perfectly," Lee Gray, executive director of the Hospitality Education Foundation of Georgia, said in a statement.
Drew High's culinary arts program allows students to obtain scholarships and participate in events like Taste of Georgia where they can showcase their talents.
