One of the goals with our freshmen in ANSC 117, Texas Barbecue, in addition to learning everything about barbecue, is teaching them to make side dishes and desserts. Our motto from day 1 has been this: “If you learn to cook, you will always have friends!” Good barbecue restaurants also may be as well known for their great sides and desserts as they are for their smoked meats.
Jackie Savell has helped lead this effort for the class, and she has a variety of wonderful side dishes and desserts that are quite popular with our students. This week, “Jackie’s Banana Pudding” was featured, with plenty of help in making this dessert, and everyone participating in eating it.
Here are some photos of the students helping out and of the finished product.
