Re Find the next rock star chefs in our schools (Forum, Dec. 15): Georgeanne Brennan and Ann M. Evans nailed it with their article on terrific food service directors and school lunch chefs. My mouth was watering at the description of Turlock Unified School Districts rotisserie chicken, sweet potato fries and barbecued grass-fed burgers and the jicama sticks served with lemon in Esparto schools. What a natural benefit to both children and local farmers to serve delicious mandarin oranges and other fruits and vegetables in season. It is noteworthy to read theres a generation of school food service directors retiring in the next decade, providing excellent stable jobs for young people who will influence the health of our children. Thank you!
