Our little hamlet is full of surprises….my recent stumble takes me to the Culinary Arts Academy who a personal chef friend of mine routinely goes on and on about. The main function is as a training academy for local high school and college students to obtain a taste of what it is like to work in the food industry. They serve breakfast (8 to 10:30am) and lunch (11:00am to 2pm) Tuesday through Friday from the large, clean and friendly location at 1900 Golden Hill Road. The Academy caters large and small groups from weddings to RV groups to business meetings and events. They also provide school meals for 4000 – 5000. During my visit, my attention was immediately drawn to a huge platter of generous cookies that can be ordered the night before for $2.50 a dozen……. Then I was treated to the days special of Jamaican Curried Pork……..rich, well spiced, made from scratch and simply delicious! I am going back for breakfast soon and a crazy sandwich called the Shrimp Club (only $6.25!) They acknowledge that they are a well-kept secret as they can’t advertise through the standard avenues. This is a place that is definitely worth checking out!!!
