ATLANTA -- As the New England Patriots prepare to take on the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta this Sunday, another team is also getting ready to take on the rush at Mercedes-Benz Stadium: culinary graduates.
Then, once they earn their ServSafe certificate, they’re placed in a job. For many, they are placed in the same spot they took their course: the West Nest food stall.
With security preparations underway at the stadium, students currently enrolled in the Westside Works culinary academy practiced preparing food off-site on Thursday.
"I was a flight attendant for a major airline," culinary student Candace Glover said. "I recently had a baby, so this is a big career change -- so I could be closer to my daughter and plus I have a passion for cooking."
“My favorite part is the preparation,” she added, explaining that she loves seeing the steps that go into a recipe "before it lands on a plate."
Though students and graduates typically work together at the stall, only graduates of the program will be working during the Super Bowl.
