NYC's top educator turns top chef in Park Slope

BROOKLYN - Dennis Walcott began his tenure as the new schools chancellor by fulfilling a promise he made and serving his special soy milk waffles today at P.S. 10 in Park Slope.

P.S. 10 Principal Laura Scott says the arrangement was made before Walcott was named chancellor last week, replacing Cathie Black.

According to Scott, Walcott, who had served as deputy mayor since 2002, has visited the school on numerous occasions to inspect the Gifted and Talented education program, ESL classes and the school's science fairs.

During a meeting with students in the Healthy Steps program, the kids asked Walcott what he eats for breakfast, and he told them that he makes waffles with soy milk. The students met it with skepticism and challenged Walcott to prepare the waffles and make them taste delicious.

Walcott served his special waffles in the library of the school to rave reviews.
