After spending a total of 46 hours thru out the Summer in a variety of tasks and observations in the COUSD Food Service Department, Sam R. had the challenge of producing a menu/main entrée with ingredients that the department currently carries.
The Cuban Bowl was then created. The bowl consisted of a layering of food products. Brown rice seasoned with Spanish seasoning, sautéed bell peppers and onions, black beans and shredded pork.
