The residential students from Van Cleve and Schermerhorn programs had an opportunity to learn the do's and don'ts of making a pizza by Chef Carl Giardina. Chef Carl who has been in the pizza business for over 20 years is the owner and creator of "Make A Pizza Parties".
His experience in the pizza industry, and as owner of Bachagaloop's Restaurant in Wayne, NJ, has allowed him to develop a creative learning experience to get children in the kitchen and turning them into helpers, and hopefully, aspiring chefs.
The popularity of these parties led Chef Carl and Bachagaloop's to appearances on local television shows, such as Good Day New York (WNYW - Ch. 5) and coverage in many newspapers and magazines.
