Young chefs in the culinary class at Lufkin High School spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but from cheesecake to pasta, they say it is their passion.
Ashley Trevino, a young chef, said, "I like to cook Italian food, I'm good at that."
Many of the students are going on to culinary art schools after graduation. But, for now, their first priority is getting desserts ready for the Taste of Lufkin.
The chefs come to class early, stay late, and work hard.
Quentin Watts, another cook, said, "A messy cook is a good cook."
The Taste of Lufkin will be held Tuesday night from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at the Pitser Garrison Civic Center. You can buy tickets in advance for $10 and at the door at $12.
