First lady Michelle Obama, celebrity chef Rachael Ray visit Mississippi

About 20 Clinton students tasted the fajitas, sloppy joe and other foods during the cook-off. Obama and Ray raved about the smell of the foods and, as they began sampling the dishes, the taste.

“Do you have any favorites yet?” Obama asked the group of children judging the food. ” This looks really good.”

She asked, “How’s the banana smoothie?”

Good, the kids answered.

“How’s the quinoa patty?” she asked.

One student replied: “What’s that?”
