Spooky Dishes in ProStart
Halloween is almost here and we know all of you have been hard at work in your kitchens creating spooky dishes full of rich, fall flavors! We decided to highlight a few of our favorite Halloween dishes that we’ve seen ProStart students whip up, plus a few pumpkin carving contests results! Keep reading to check them out.
Dixie High School
Dixie High High School understood the assignment when it came to their Halloween Bake-off. We are loving all the creativity from each of these goodies! We couldn’t pick a winner if we tried.
The students at CTE Culinary had the chance to learn from Stacie of Fig Tales Custom Cookie for this spook-tacular lesson! We’d say they did a pretty great job at capturing the Halloween spirit.
Sergeant Bluff-Luton Senior High School
Culinary One at Sergeant Bluff High School participated in a cheesecake lab, and we think this slice is the prettiest pumpkin in the patch. We are loving these decorations!
Pacific Grove High
The students in Culinary One at Pacific Grove High were hard at work prepping almost 30 pounds of caramel and used some to make caramel corn! We think it’s the perfect snack to munch on when waiting for trick-or-treaters.
Pennsylvania ProStart held a statewide pumpkin carving contest for PA ProStart students! Check out just a few of the submissions or head to the @paprostart Instagram to browse them all and vote! Voting ends on October 31st.
