Students from Liaison Hamilton were on hand on Saturday, March 3 to help with the first annual Bay Area Dads for Dads, a culinary fundraiser for Bereaved Families of Ontario. It was a light-hearted competition, but the students’ role was a serious one. They were elbow to elbow with 38 amateur cooks at Liuna Station, ensuring that high food safety standards were met, and the home chefs had everything they needed to make the event run smoothly.

Taking care of the competing cooks and the judges (Liaison's Murline Mallette among them), Bill  (a student from Advanced Cook Level II) brought along a batch of his awesome bean soup with maple bacon. Beatrice (also from the Advanced class) baked focaccia bread for them as well, fragrant with caramelized onion, rosemary and thyme.

Check out some of the photos from the evening (more to come). Our students are the ones with the caps hats (the tall chef toques were reserved for competitors).
