Students on the Cumming Elementary School Green Team have learned about eating meals cooked with fresh vegetables directly from the garden.On Monday, they got to taste the difference. Using fresh ingredients from the school’s 32-bed garden, Chef Tom Costello prepared a gourmet meal of mashed turnips and chicken stir fry for the students. It wasn’t the usual after-school snack, but rather part of a special program called Chefs Move to Schools, where culinary professionals work with schools to share their expertise.
