Culinary Arts students bake up some holiday memories for charity
More than 72 eggs, 28 sticks of butter, 35 cups of sugar, and a lot of elbow grease, went into the 3,000 cookies whipped up by Okanagan College Culinary Arts students and instructors this week. The tasty treats are going into hundreds of holiday stockings for kids attending a special charity performance of The Nutcracker at the Kelowna Community Theatre on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 2 p.m.
