City appoints first executive chef in an effort to dish out healthier school lunches
The city's newly appointed executive chef stopped off at M.S. 141 Thursday to dish out of his specialties.
Jorge Leon Collazo is the Department of Educaton's first appointed executive chef. It's part of a plan by education officials to serve up more appealing and healthy school food.
While at the predominantly Hispanic school, Collazo dished out 'pollo quizado,' which means stewed chicken in Spanish. He says his vision is to create food that has more complexity to it.
While education officials are hoping to help curb obesity and diabetes in Bronx and city schools, they are also trying to increase the number of city kids enrolled in the school lunch program.
