Culinary arts students rise to the occasion

The Frederick County Reading Council recently hosted a book club event at the Frederick County Public Schools Career & Technology Center. FCRC wishes to thank Bridgette Hopkins, culinary arts instructor, and Emily Miller and Jacob Myers, culinary arts students, for teaching the members and guests of the FCRC the art of croissant making. It was a pleasure to see the impressive CTC kitchen and to have the opportunity to make and enjoy our own croissants in such a wonderful facility.
