Cosmopolitan chefs give cooking tips to students ahead of benefit gala
As a kind of event hors d’oeuvre to its main entrée — hosting the dropout-prevention gala “Today for Tomorrow” for Communities In Schools (CIS) of Nevada on Nov. 10 — the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas recently dispatched a pair of its acclaimed chefs to Eldorado High School to demonstrate cooking techniques to students.
Executive sous chef Chef Mark Crane and chef de cuisine Anthony Herve, taught CIS kids how to whip up specialties such as Wicked French Toast and a Berry Smoothie from the menu of the Cosmopolitan’s Wicked Spoon buffet in an interactive demonstration.
It will be followed up by the annual “foodie” gala, which will feature foods from 16 of the Cosmopolitan’s restaurants, including the Wicked Spoon and the newly opened Block 16 Urban Food Hall.
Gala proceeds will benefit CIS of Nevada, whose mission is to keep students in school and on the path to graduation. Operating in 63 school sites throughout Nevada, CIS serves more than 67,000 students by helping them and their families connect with educational and community resources and a support network. Nationally, CIS serves 1.5 million students annually in 25 states and the District of Columbia.
