WEST VALLEY CITY — A cooking show broke out in an elementary school cafeteria on Friday.

Granite School District chef Jeff Gratton, Principal Paula Sorensen and kitchen manager Nancy Jones took a regular school lunch menu item, teriyaki beef stir fry, and turned it into a live action show at Silver Hills Elementary.

Students, faculty, staff and parents were treated to the smells and sights of fresh broccoli and beef sautéing in pans.

“Students learn how much care we put into their meals every school day,” Gratton said.

The culinary program was launched in response to a federal Chefs Move to Schools initiative.
