Restaurant Review: Fried Ice Cream at the Chili Factory
by Derek Curely '19
This treat is great for anyone who loves coconut or has a sweet tooth. The setting of the service got crowded at times, but was mainly mild, and the employees are friendly with a fast service. As a rating I would give this dessert a 4/5 leaving, one out mainly because the treat is prepackaged. Despite the prepackaging, the fried ice cream treat at the Chili Factory is a nice treat for coconut lovers and those with a sweet tooth.
The Sophomore That Took Gold at SkillsUSA
By Angelic Martinez '19
Joel has amazing support from his parents that pushes him to better himself. Rivera got into State because of Mrs. Jones, the instructor of the Culinary Arts class here at Gallup High. Mrs. Jones had asked Rivera if he wanted to go to a culinary skill competition in Albuquerque and he had said yes. Joel trained for a mere 2 weeks instead of 4 months for this skill competition. It’s amazing how a person who is new and offers little experience can manage to win state. He had competed with 50 states including Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Joel prepared his food by whatever takes the most time because time is everything in a competition. For his finale dish he had made a sauted chicken with a parmesan sauce, parmesan orzo pasta, then a pho soup and a garden salad. Joel felt like he couldn’t win state at all because it was barely his second year and he felt he didn’t have that much experience compared to the others, but with that little experience he had he was able to come up on top. His overall experience was great because he met a lot of new people and it had many great opportunities along the way. Joel had stated, “I would do it again in a heartbeat.”
