Students in Long Beach High School's Gourmet Foods class went to Eric's Italian Bistro on March 25 for a gourmet meal experience. Chef George Echeverria and his team served a three-course meal. He gave students a tour of the kitchen and shared his knowledge of culinary arts. Sous chef Nery Aguirre also led a demonstration on how to make an au pouive sauce. Gourmet foods teachers Scott Brecher and Ilyssa Leeper accompanied students on the outing.
"This trip truly gave an inside look at the skills, business and passion that goes into fine dining," said Mr. Brecher. "The students had a great time while learning hands on about the food industry."
