Chef Dan Manley and a group of students at Granville Middle School

Cap City Fine Diner’s Executive Chef Dan Manley recently teamed up with 13-year-old Sydney Mazik for a cooking demonstration at Granville Middle School. The duo partnered through Kids & Chefs Cook for Success after Sydney won the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge for Ohio earlier this year with her recipe for spaghetti squash asparagus pie. Chef Dan and Sydney prepared vegetable risotto from scratch for three family and consumer sciences classes at Sydney’s school.
