Who would have expected that it would turn out to be the most popular Farmers' Choice special we had all year! As I started spooning the bite-sized samples into little cups, it was met with a bit of trepidation. Only a few kids wanted to try it. But as soon as Mr. Peparo's and Mrs. Scrocca's classes came into the cafeteria, everything changed. These were the classes that made the dish with the chefs. These are the kids that said they didn't like spinach before the chefs visited, then overwhelmingly loved spinach after cooking with the chefs.
One by one, these kids came up to get a taste of their "Spinach Supreme." Then other kids got curious and followed suit. Suddenly it was a big hit with all the kids coming up asking for samples. They asked for seconds, thirds, fourths. One kid had six helpings!
