Dorsey Culinary Academy Students Cook Using Local Ingredients

Farm fresh cheese, baked goods, jam, and wine were on the menu at The Community House’s Farm to Table block party in Birmingham, Michigan on September 7, 2013. Dorsey Culinary Academy students played a vital role in this event by serving a remarkable number of 700 guests who attended this first annual event (despite the rainy weather).  Among some of the tasty treats served, students from Dorsey Schools dished up locally-grown Zester apples in a tart cranberry compote and pastry cream, along with a kale, prosciutto and cranberry salad, featuring kale that was also locally grown.
