"Pies on Wheels" - Brick Oven Pizza Lunch!
On Friday, November 4th Island Trees High School Staff and Gourmet Foods students were served a delicious treat! "Pies on Wheels", a brick-oven pizza food truck that caters private events, came to Island Trees to serve up a variety of delicious brick-oven pizza for lunch. The Gourmet Foods classes participated in an in-school field trip involving a fresh brick-oven pizza lunch straight from the "Pies on Wheels" truck. The owner, Elizabeth Greco, also provided our students with an inspirational and informative presentation about how her food truck dream became a reality. Elizabeth Greco peeked open the door of opportunity for Gourmet Foods students into the food industry. This field trip helped ignite discussion amongst students on how their kitchen group might approach the upcoming Pizza Throw-down competition. In the upcoming weeks the Gourmet students will be competing for the best pizza title. Stay tuned for our Pizza Throw-down results!!!!
