MARLBOROUGH – Students in a new cooking class at Marlborough High School received a welcome guest visit last week, before April Vacation this week.

Sandra Stuart is the teacher of a new, two semester cooking program at MHS that splits students between a “Fundamentals of Cooking” class and a “Cooking Methods” class.

Students take their Fundamentals class in their first semester in the program before then taking Cooking Methods in their second semester.

Stuart recently coordinated a visit from the area food truck “Say Cheese” for her Fundamentals class.

That let students sample grilled cheeses before they’re set to have their own “grilled cheese wars” after April vacation.

The visit, taking place on April 14, also nearly coincided with National Grilled Cheese Day, which was April 12.

Beyond Fundamentals students’ grilled cheese competition, Cooking Methods students are planning their own food truck wars, creating menus, logos and social media campaigns for their own food trucks before cooking an item off their menu for staff judges to critique.

“The students are very excited to show their culinary creativity when they return from break,” Stuart wrote in a message to the Community Advocate.
