"Cooking Thyme with Tri-County" launches on Franklin TV
The Culinary Arts program at Tri-County launched their first cooking series on Franklin TV during the week of May 18.
During each episode, the students will explain how to prepare a restaurant-quality meal. They explain the origin of each dish, important cooking techniques, and suggestions for presentation. The Culinary Arts students also cover important food safety information, which is a vital part of their curriculum.
This new television program allows the students to showcase the skills they've acquired while they also learn about another career area. Many freshmen who choose to enter the Culinary Arts Program say they initially grew an interest in the field after watching cooking shows. By producing their own television show, the students gain firsthand experience in the planning and production process. They also perfect their public speaking skills.
Students in the Graphic Communications program at Tri-County volunteered to assist in the production process. This exposes them to a field that relies on the work of graphic designers.

Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School invites members of the community to attend the third annual Tee Off for Tri-County on Friday, June 12, at the Wentworth Hills Golf Club in Plainville.
