The team of students who won a culinary competition at Riverside High School cooked alongside Chris Ferrier, executive chef at West Belmont Place at The National, formally known as The National Conference Center.
Last week, the students presented a Chef’s Table full of dinner for their families, teachers and school principal. They are enrolled in Riverside’s Nutrition and Wellness class, Gourmet Cooking.
The National has partnered with Riverside High School, which neighbors its property, since the school opened in August. The National regularly hosts the school’s booster club and partners with them for special events. When the school held a culinary contest two weeks ago, Chef Ferrier and Food and Beverage Director John Walsh participated in selecting the winning team.
