Screaming Avocados, Rideau Hall and the Royal Tour

"Six students from two Avon Maitland Schools have been selected to be part of a very special group of young Canadians. They will be heading to Ottawa next week for the historic Royal Visit by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada at Rideau Hall. On Thursday, June 30, 2011 four students from Stratford Northwestern Secondary School and two from Mitchell District High School will be among just 22 young culinary professionals and students from across the country. This special group of students will be mentored by Rideau Hall chefs and will assist the Governor General's culinary team with preparations and service for an evening celebration with their Royal Highnesses. The visit by the newlywed Prince William and Kate Middleton to Canada is their first official tour abroad."
