A sweet cinnamon surprise

“Chef Roger” gave away 742 cinnamon rolls as a surprise mid-semester pick me up Oct. 7.
How iconic are senior executive chef Roger Elkhouri’s cinnamon rolls? So iconic that there’s a hue named for his sweet treats in the new Rice Color Walk public art installation outside Hanszen College. No surprise then that students in the North colleges were quick to queue up as “Chef Roger” gave away 742 cinnamon rolls as a surprise mid-semester pick me up Oct. 7. (Photos by Jeff Fitlow)
