Culinary competition winners

A roasted chicken, wild rice, kale and butternut squash dish created by eighth graders Geoffrey Ramnath, Melanie Wells, Libby Maxwell and Veronica Fahs won the third quarter culinary competition at Middlebrook School earlier this month. Culinary arts teacher Heather Priest started the quarterly cooking competitions two years ago, during which students are given three days at the end of each quarter to research and prepare recipes for the competition. — Heather Priest photo
