Students in Chef Bill Twaler’s culinary arts program at Wando HS were recently invited by the local chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier (LDEI) to assist in food prep and service at one of the organization’s upcoming gatherings.
LDEI is an invitational organization of women leaders in food, beverage and hospitality whose mission is education and philanthropy.
The students prepared special biscuits for the guests and assisted in other aspects of the food services required at the event.
“We jumped at the opportunity for this work-based learning opportunity for the students”, said Chef Twaler on the opportunity to partner with LDEI.
