Eleven students who enrolled in Will Siskey's kids cooking classes showed their skills when they cooked and served 40 people at Alabama Avenue Middle School on Friday. The school's home economics department was used for classes during the cooking classes this week.

Among the dignitaries attending were Mayor Carl Pruett and his assistant, Shelly Thomas, and City Council members Jeannie Courington and Kerry NeSmith.
Will's father, Paul Siskey, was on hand for the event, as were the parents of the other chefs.

The young chefs not only did the cooking but served the menu of salad, spaghetti, bread and a special chocolate pudding under the watchful eye of Will's mother, Rebecca Rogers.

"We thought this would give the kids the experience of not only cooking but serving a meal as well," Rogers said.

Will said he was a little tired by the end of the event.

"I had to get up at 6 a.m. to get ready," he said, "but my mom helped me out."

Guests left full - and impressed - with the young cooks.

Will has several projects in the works that include an appearance on a network cooking show and a cookbook for children that includes recipes his many fans across the country have been sending to him since his popularity soared.

He has already been teaching his classes at several vacation spots on the coast.
