My name is Robert Russell and I am the Chef at North Cedar Academy. This last month I was given the unique opportunity to go to Liandu Foreign Language School in China to share cooking techniques with and learn from the cooking staff there. What a great experience that was! I got to work with some amazing people that really “rolled out the red carpet” for me. Everyone was very helpful and kind. They taught me many useful, traditional Chinese cooking techniques that I look forward to utilizing in the kitchen at North Cedar Academy. I was also able to have a meal with a group of great kids from their school, in which I got to see and taste things that I would have never gotten to otherwise. I can’t thank our Board of Directors enough for the unforgettable experience that they bestowed upon me.
