LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin High School students are giving cooking shows like Rachel Ray and Chef Jeff a run for their money. The new broadcasting and the culinary arts courses are putting their talents together to create a cooking show of their own. A few from the crew said the idea is a benefit to them all.
It was "lights, camera, cooking."
"It's really fun. It's enjoyable. We've done so much, and I've learned so much," said Brianna Alexander, an audio video production student.
"Culinary Classics" is the brand new cooking show based at Lufkin High School. The show made its debut dishing out the steps for fresh cheesy garlic bread.
The show kicked off as a success with the help of two courses combined to collaborate.
"It helps a lot because you're cooking and making sure your time is okay," said Diamond Moreland, a culinary arts student.
"It shows us how videos and movies are made and that it's not a little process. It's a team effort," said Kahlil Brown, an audio video production student.
Culinary arts and audio video production students cooked up a show together. It's yielding several benefits.
"It's also helped me learn what I want to do which is be a television coordinator," Alexander said.
"It's good being in front of the camera because I want to be a teacher, and it's helping me talk in front of people," Moreland said.
The joint effort offered a unique experience sure to help the students in other arenas.
"It not only shows us how to be in front of a camera, but we work behind the camera," Brown said.
"It's going to help a lot because I want to host. I'm looking forward to it," Alexander said.
Floor directors, producers, and hosts were all a part of the show.
"I think that he's teaching us a lot in the little time that we have left," Brown said.
The students said the finished product of these opportunities were even greater than this delectable outcome.
"They help us find out where we want to go and what we want to do with our lives," said Zabrina McDaniel, a culinary arts student.
The "Culinary Classics" cooking show will continue throughout this week.
