Into The Frying Pan: Restaurant Run By Students In Waco, Texas Reopened
WACO, TEXAS: Sometimes learning has to be a hands-on experience. Sitting in a classroom sometimes just doesn't cut it in terms of learning whatever you want to do in life. For example, if you want to learn photography or film, you'd probably want to practice with a camera before you try to put together a photo album or a movie.
But for things such as cooking, culinary classes are trials by fire at points. Learning how to cook certain foods, how certain things should be prepped, and most importantly, how to make it taste delicious. But how does one actually get prepared for working in a restaurant?
One eatery in Waco is helping out culinary student prepare for a career in food service in a very interesting way.
Texas State Technical College Class Helping Students
