A team of Templeton Middle School students qualified as winners in the fifth annual Whipping Up Wellness Wisconsin Student Chef recipe competition.
Seventh grade students Lauren Baker, Lauren Kessen, Nicole Gall, Isabella Scheiber, Camden Gerke and Alexander Tong developed an original, student-friendly recipe that included legumes. Their recipe, Black Bean Enchiladas with Wild Rice and Corn, will be included in the student chef cookbook published by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
Schools throughout the state submitted recipes created by teams of students in grades 6-12. Recipes were judged on nutritional quality, incorporation of legumes, use of culinary skills, ease of use by school food service, recipe presentation, recipe description and creativity. The contest was sponsored by Wisconsin Team Nutrition and healthTIDE.
