Future Chefs

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Local 4th and 5th graders from three different schools are taking a shot at becoming a chef.

The students had three hours to prepare the kid-friendly, healthy dishes with a little help from adults.

4th grader, Nicholas Darling, is just one of the aspiring chefs and he made fruit salsa.

Darling says he loves cooking and enjoys coming up with some wacky stuff.

Food services general manager, Bette Hunt, says the recipes are healthy after school snacks the youngsters can prepare on their own.

She says her favorite part of the event is to see how much fun the kids have when they're cooking.

"A lot of times we have parents tell us that their child is not athletic, or not musical, but they do have an interest in cooking and they wanna be a chef someday, so this fits right into that," said Hunt.

"I put some jalapeno in it, so I hope they like it, and that it's not too spicy for them," said Darling.

Darling says his favorite food by his group today was a "melon mobile," a watermelon carved out and filled with different kinds of fruit.
