Our favorite chef got a sweet surprise yesterday at LBA’s Redondo Beach location, when Ms. Susan presented Chef Jose with a birthday treat and students sang the familiar “Happy Birthday” song with enthusiasm.
Ms. Susan’s birthday treat for Chef Jose was even more unique than normal birthday cake! She made pan dulce topped with pineapple bread, forming a beautiful presentation fit to impress even a seasoned chef!
After the Redondo preschoolers sang to him, Chef Jose blew out his candle with a smile.
The amount of time and effort that Chef Jose puts into creating healthy and delicious recipes for our LBA students is incredible. Using fresh ingredients, including some seasonal ones from Leap and Bound Academy’s very own garden, Chef Jose creates unique recipes enjoyable to all LBA students. He constantly improves recipes and plans a rotating menu so kids never get bored of the same daily meal. And the best part is, all of the lunches are prepared fresh from Chef Jose’s kitchen at the Medical Center location!
Thank you Chef Jose for the wonderful recipes! We hope you had a fantastic birthday!
