If I were a mango
Which I would like to be
I would be quite content
Living on a tree!

Bright is my cheery flesh
Refreshingly sweet
My lovely color
Sure can't be beat
And better yet
I can take some heat!

If I am bruised
It is ok
Do not worry
Use me as a puree!

Toss me in salad
Add me to rice
Grill me or sauté
I’m perfect every way!

If I were a mango
Which I would like to be
Making people healthy
AnnmarieSure sounds nice to me!

Congrats Chef Chelius! You won a complimentary registration to the 16th annual CAFÉ Leadership Conference in June 2021!

And thank you to the Mango Board for recognizing the role that women in foodservice have!
