Culinary Arts Students Provide Wholesome Breakfast for Greenburgh Anniversary Celebration

Close to 200 Greenburgh residents celebrating the 50th anniversary of the town’s Theodore D. Young Community Center were treated to a delicious breakfast Oct. 14 courtesy of the SWBOCES Culinary Arts Program.

Students from the program, which is housed at the BOCES Center for Career Services in Valhalla, made a selection of delicious breakfast fare for the event. It included waffles, quiche, roasted potatoes flavored in onion and rosemary, sausage and bacon, as well as a Continental breakfast offering of fruit salad, scones, mini muffins, cupcakes, as well as cinnamon raisin and pumpkin spice bread.

Under the direction of Chef John Damiani, the students prepared some of the food beforehand and then stored it in a freezer until the day of the event.

The breakfast was part of the town’s festivities to highlight the impact the community center has had on Greenburgh’s Fairview community over five decades.

The Fairview Community Corp./Friends of TDYCC partnered with the Town of Greenburgh to arrange the breakfast as well as other celebratory events, including a fundraising gala that took place Oct. 11.

Town Supervisor Paul Feiner said he was grateful to the BOCES students for their hard work and to BOCES in general for partnering with the town on this and other collaborative efforts.

“We’re so thankful that they’re partnering with the town and helping to make this breakfast a really special event,” said Mr. Feiner. “I think the students are really very capable and efficient, and they’re going to be great successes in life, thanks to BOCES,” he added.

Chef Damiani said the students learned about the logistics that go into such events, such as purchasing supplies, in addition to the production, timing and staffing aspects of the job.

“You can put this on your resume and say that you were part of this, from production to food costs, to execution, to menu planning, everything,” Mr. Damiani told the first- and second-year students who participated.
