(NASA.gov) – Astronauts aboard the International Space Station recently feasted on a spicy Jamaican rice and beans with coconut milk entrée cooked up by a team of culinary students from Phoebus High School in Hampton, Virginia.
The Phoebus team’s dish won the 2015 High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware, or HUNCH, Culinary Challenge. They had to compete against six other high school culinary teams last year during a visit to the Space Food Systems Laboratory at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
The spicy concoction launched to the ISS this past April aboard a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft.
A red pepper risotto created by high school students from Passaic County Technical Institute in Wayne, New Jersey, won the 2016 HUNCH Culinary Challenge. It will be processed for flight and enjoyed by astronauts aboard the space station next year.
