School Nutrition Assn.'s 8th annual State Culinary Competition March 22 at LeCordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Tucker to be selected as one of 30 school nutrition professionals from across the state to compete in the final round in April. Recipes had to appeal to student pallets, reflect new nutrition standards and include locally grown fruits or vegetables. Here is her winning recipe:
