Every fall, students at Westridge and their parents get creative in their kitchens and whip up a variety of dishes and baked goods that feature that oddly-shaped, sweet orange tuber, the yam.
Among the foods served up by the parents at this year’s event were yam fries, pies, soups, mochi and ice cream, couscous with yams, candied yams, yamadoodle cookies and yam biryani.
