Sample the Seasons is an annual event where businesses downtown open up their stores and serve food. The Culinary program has been involved in the event for many years. This year they served cookies, fudge, hot chocolate, macaroni and cheese, and pizza rolls. 

“I think Sample the Seasons had a really good group of kids this year,” senior Liz Peterson said. “They wanted to show their skills and worked really hard to do that.”

Sample the Seasons for the Culinary program is about showing off their experience and is a good place to practice service skills.

“I feel the response from the crowd was good,” PHS work coordinator Tamara Schiermeister said. “They were a little disappointed that we ran out of food so fast.”

Sample the Seasons is from 5 pm to 8 pm; culinary ran out of food around 6:30. 

“It was nice when we ran out of food,” junior Kenna Jacobsen said. “Because we could see all of our hard work paid off.”

Although Sample the Seasons was a success, like any other big project, there were many challenges.

“Our advisor was not able to be there because she was at a conference and the dates got switched around,” Peterson said. “So we had other staff members and students step into that role.”

It wasn’t just the Culinary teacher that wasn’t able to attend; several students also could not be there.

“Some classmates couldn’t make it to Sample the Seasons,” Jacobsen said. “They could not get the correct day off of work due to the mix up.”

There were many difficulties, yet the Culinary department pulled through and succeeded.

“The best part of Sample of the Seasons was watching the kids come together and present their food,” PHS science teacher Wendy Smith said. “I think most people really enjoyed the event.”
