Gerharz Equipment hosts American Dairy

Go Back

Food service directors from across the state of New York, as well as six Baldwinsville Central School District students, got the opportunity to attend a recipe tasting focus group presented by the National Dairy Association North East (NDANE) on Thursday, Nov. 15 held at the newly opened Dick and Joan Gerharz Food Service Education Center at 220 Teall Ave in Syracuse.. 

The students and directors got the opportunity to watch food preparation demonstrations conducted by Gerharz Equipment Staff Chef Anthony Donofrio and Chef Greg Rhoad, and sample ten different recipes. After all the recipes were sampled, students provided genuine and honest feedback about what they had just tasted. Some of the students' favorite breakfast recipes were a blueberry muffin parfait, which had layers of yogurt, blueberries, blueberry muffins and apple cobbler overnight oats. Popular lunch recipes included a sriracha chicken parfait and a buffalo chicken dip served with carrots. The recipes that the students’ enjoyed the most have a possibility of being implemented on menus in schools throughout the district and around the state. For the recipes that weren’t so hot, the students had great feedback on how to improve them. They came up with creative ideas that the adults did not think to make them better. Some of these recipes will be implemented into the school lunch programs in the near future. 

Gerharz Equipment is proud to partner with the American Dairy as well as school food service directors to assist in acheiving their goals.
