The Bellport High School Culinary Arts students recently hosted a dinner in honor of Board of Education Recognition Week. Board of Education Trustees from the South Country Central School District were greeted by the culinary students of Ms. Camille Masem and Ms. Elizabeth Glasshagel with fruit punch and lemonade as they entered. Trustees were then served salad, main course and desserts. Carved swans from apples and individual baked Alaska were prepared for dessert. Being cognoscente of food allergies a gluten free dinner was prepared as an option. Guests were also treated to an outstanding musical performance by a string trio from Bellport High School.

The Culinary Arts Program at Bellport High School was created 7 years ago as a career pathway by Ms. Sheila Smith, Bellport High School business teacher. Currently the program has doubled in size and in the process of becoming a Career Technology Education certified program.
