A Sacramento culinary school will be selling chowder to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Staff and students of Le Cordon Bleu Sacramento will be selling the chowder for $10 a quart and $5 a pint at the campus, 2450 Del Paso Road in Natomas from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.
The proceeds will benefit One Fund Boston, which provides financial support for victims.
The culinary school's executive chef Richard Jensen has replaced potatoes traditionally used in the chowder with locally grown red rice and white corn.
According to a press release, the corn from Bentwood adds sweetness to balance the rich chowder and the Wehani rice lends texture and visual appeal.
