Hillside students were treated to a tasty and healthy snack when Chef Floyd Cardoz came to visit this week. Cardoz, a world renowned chef who won Bravo’s Top Chef Masters and competed on Iron Chef, shared a food prep demo in the Hillside cafeteria during lunch.

Students were able to see Cardoz prepare Roasted Broccoli with Honey and Lemon and sampled the dish along with a cucumber salad and fruit smoothies. Cardoz repeated the cooking demo for each lunch period, so all students were able to enjoy and learn from the experience. The broccoli was a big hit, with one student telling Cardoz after sampling it, “You’re the best chef in the world!”

The event was coordinated by Natasha Mathias along with members of Hillside’s Health & Wellness Team. Ingredients were generously donated by Fairway and Whole Foods.
