New Hyde Park Restaurant Owner Visits Sewanhaka High School

David Hersh, co-owner of Avo Taco in New Hyde Park, and Chef Matt came to Sewanhaka High School to meet with students in the culinary program for a question-and-answer session, as well as a demonstration on menu items from Avo Taco.

First, Mr. Hersh prepared fresh guacamole with chips using the recipe from his restaurant. All students in Culinary I and Culinary II classes tasted the foods he prepared. They also helped with the preparation of the food. Next, Mr. Hersh prepared a vinaigrette dressing for coleslaw to pair with fresh seared tuna. Everyone sampled each dish as Mr. Hersh spoke about his career journey, as well as the importance of being a team player in any field the students intend to pursue.
