First Lady of Virginia Dorothy McAuliffe, wife of Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, visited a cooking class at the Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School Wednesday morning to sit in on a cooking competition. Henderson students formed into teams and presented dishes to four judges from various City businesses.
Judges included Tori McKinney from Rock Star Realty, Daniel Blumenthal from Elevation Burger, Heather Brushwood from Einstein’s Bagels and David Tax from Clare and Don’s Beach Shack. The City schools’ food service director Richard Kane ran the competition in which plantains had to be included.
Dorothy McAuliffe has chosen improved childhood nutrition as a major focus of her efforts statewide. She drove up from Richmond for yesterday’s event.
