The Pennsylvania Farm Show saved the best for last as the DOC Culinary Arts Program was featured on the final day of the 2019 show.

Chef Todd Lewis, a DOC restaurant trades instructor, who runs the Culinary Arts Program at the Training Academy, led a cooking demonstration with Martin, an inmate and graduate of the program. The demonstration was part of the prestigious PA Preferred Culinary Connection, which highlights local food products and Pennsylvania chefs throughout the duration of the Farm Show. The duo cooked cheese, leek and mushroom bread pudding for the crowd of more than one hundred people, who enjoyed samples afterward.

The demonstration was well-received and allowed DOC to share information about the important reentry training work the program has provided to hundreds of inmates over the past 15 years.

ABC27 featured the event on their evening broadcast. Additional photos and the complete recipe can be found on the DOC's Facebook page.
