This school year, the PCISD HS Culinary I & II students opened The Brahma Kitchen and began selling lunches twice a week and take-n-bake meals in addition to holiday special treats to district employees, along with offering a daily coffee and tea bar with homemade baked goods and snacks to raise funds for kitchen supplies and field trips.
They also auctioned 5 cakes at the FFA Auction and catered the 2021 FFA Banquet.
As part of their program, the culinary students cater the press box meals during football season at home games, cook for The Brahma Backers monthly meetings, monthly School Board meetings, Teacher Appreciation Week and various holiday teacher/faculty treats.
For their 2020-2021 end-of-the-year trip on May 11th, The Brahma Kitchen students traveled to Texarkana to meet with Chef Jeffrey Loving of Chef on the Run at Silvermoon on Broad for a cooking class and meal. The students enjoyed two hours filled with knife skills, cleaning and preparing a beef tenderloin, seasoning and flavor profiles, cleanliness and setup along with "mise en place".
The students shared a three course meal including a watermelon salad, beef tenderloin with fried potatoes with asparagus, finished with a lemon mousse.
In addition, the 11 students toured the Silvermoon Theater, parts of the historic downtown Texarkana area such as the Perot Theater, Grim Hotel, 1894 Gallery, train station and artistic murals.
