Our Winooski Spartaneers!
Our Winooski Spartaneers Alyssa Winegar, Shyanna Sweeney, and Jason Truong competed Saturday, March 22nd at the Junior Iron Chef Competition at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds. They prepared their famous Stuffed Spartan Tomatoes with kale chips on the side. Jacie Knapp, 5th grade teacher at Winooski’s JFK Elementary has been working with them since late November as they perfected their recipe. They had a fabulous time cooking together and walked away with the “Crowd Pleaser Award” which is given to the chefs who create the dish that is the judge’s favorite. It was so exciting and the kids each received a bag full of cooking goodies, some cookware for the after school program and a year’s subscription to Eating Well magazine. Congratulations to Allysa, Shyanna, Jason and Jacie for representing Winooski High School in such a wonderful way!
