When Super Chef Maneet Chauhan comes to your school, you know you are in for a treat–a fruity, tangy, delicious treat you had no idea you could whip up from things sitting at home in your fruit crisper.
For the students at P.S. 160, she created a fresh fruit kebab. Students skewered chopped cantaloupe, honey dew, pineapples, oranges, strawberries and grapes to make their own snacks.
Then, explaining that everyone must work together as a team in the kitchen, Chef Chauhan had groups of students create single kebabs for guests in the room.
Once the kebabs were done, Chef Chauhan started in on a dressing. She introduced the class to the tastes of mango power and mint powder, which she combined with lemon juice and pomegranate seeds and drizzled over the fruit.
The trick to getting pomegranate seeds out of the rind? Cut the fruit in half, turn it over, and tap a spoon on the back.
Students were impressed with how the dressing changed the flavor and texture of the fruit, and left eager to try recreating the snack at home. Thanks, Chef Chauhan!
