We just had the most magical night in our garden!!!! It was an incredible team of people who pulled this off. No matter what came up, someone in our Bobcat community stepped up to ensure it was a success. Thank you to all of you that were able to give. Our hearts are full of love.

And whether you made the event or not the question that bubbled through the school and throughout the event was….TopChefEventPostersEspanol

So, which team was worthy of the prize aprons these Bobcats had been honing their skills to earn?  I mean, the answer to that question was EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM.


As I snuck around to capture shots you could hear serious discussions about how to balance out the flavors. These guys knew their stuff!

but there could be only one.


The teams working on their salsas with the goal to balance the taste and wow our judges. The excitement and tenacity of these kids was amazing!!!! Thanks to our own Diane Grodek, Principal Valerie Borchers, The City Watershed Department’s Jessica Wilson, and Lenoir’s Melissa Moss for taking on the difficult job of choosing a winning team. Talk about tough decisions….

We can’t thank Whole Foods Market enough for sponsoring the Bobcat Top Chef event.


Team ‘Never Enough Salsa’ took home the prize. Jefe Chefe guest Judge Diane Grodek announced a leading reason being their creative use of sunflower seeds and the consistency of the dip itself. We couldn’t be prouder of Monica Champion’s students.

There was too much goodness to capture in one post and too many people to thank for all of their hard efforts. I can’t believe the love and support of our Becker Community.


Please come visit our garden! We love sharing our space with our Bobcat Community!
