Now that's one tasty science project


Culinary students at Mercyhurst University are teaming up with North East Middle School to prepare lunches using fresh herbs the sixth grade class grew as part of a science project. The middle school students will travel to the Culinary Dining Room on the North East campus to observe the cooking process and have lunch at 11:30 a.m. for three days: Monday, May 6; Wednesday, May 8; and Friday, May 10.

Under the leadership of science teacher Marc Burchanowski, the North East Middle School students used the school greenhouse to grow basil, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, oregano and more. The MNE culinary students, instructed by Chef Dennis Dunne, will incorporate the herbs into healthy chicken and pasta dishes for the sixth graders to enjoy.

For more information about this event or the budding partnership between the two schools, contact Beth Ann Sheldon, director of the Hospitality Management Programs and Culinary and Wine Institute, at 814-725-6318.
