The owner of the Vol State Grille, Paul Fields, says his daughter-in-law, who is also his head cook, started working at the grille right out of high school. He also said he enjoys working with her and that he loves her lasagna.
Fields, said she loves cooking at the college but not as much at home. When she cooks at home, she loves making spaghetti or steak with peppers for her family. Pasta of any kind or shape is her favorite food to eat, said Fields.
Fields, favorite meal to cook at VSCC for the students is meatloaf with all the fixings such as mashed potatoes and warm rolls.
