Taco Friday

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 by Katy McElroy

This month, Austin Independent School District students will be competing to see who can make the best taco. The contenders in the Diced and Sliced competition are six teams from Gus Garcia Young Men’s Leadership Academy and Bailey, Bedichek, Dobie, Kealing and Lamar middle schools. The 23 finalists were whittled down from the original 340 competitors at the campus level. A panel of judges made up of local food writers, a chef and district officials will rate the tacos based on appearance, taste and recipe creativity. The winners will get to see their taco recipe featured on next year’s school lunch menu. Diced and Sliced goes down this Friday, May 18, 10:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m., at Austin Community College’s Eastview Campus.
