DALLAS (AP) — Michelle Obama is spicing up school lunches with cooks from Bravo’s “Top Chef” and the Dallas Cowboys football team.
The first lady and “Top Chef” judge Tom Colicchio acted as judges Friday. Dallas school kids and Cowboys players divided into three teams to see who could whip up the tastiest lunch in 30 minutes.
Mrs. Obama is in Dallas on a three-day national tour to promote her “Let’s Move” campaign against childhood obesity. The campaign challenges schools to meet higher nutrition standards, and Dallas schools are a leader in that regard.
The school lunch competition was filmed at a Dallas recreation center. It will air on a future episode of “Top Chef.”
