Forsyth culinary students travel to Italy, Greece



On Sept. 21, students from Lambert High School, South Forsyth High School and West Forsyth High School took a culinary oriented trip to Italy and Greece.

Chef Dawn Martin and Chef Suzanne Smatt of South Forsyth High School and Chef Laura King of Lambert High School accompanied the 14 students and 11 adults. Keith Martin and Shaun King assisted with chaperoning.

In Italy our group visited Rome, Sorrento and Pompeii.

When in Rome we visited the Colosseum and Vatican City including the Sistine Chapel. The view was astounding from the top of the Colosseum. The city’s architecture and fountains were stunning.

We had the opportunity to attend two cooking classes learning to fabricate a fish and cook it and made pizza. While in Sorrento, I ate my first cannoli visited a lemon grove and mozzarella producer.

From Italy, we traveled to Greece with stops in Athens and Delphi. In Athens we had two Michelin Star dining experiences. Other sights were the Parthenon and stadium where the first Olympics were held. In Delphi we made a visit to an olive farm.

Our group returned to Atlanta on Friday, Sept. 29. All in all, the trip was a great experience.
