By Jill Tucker: U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi donned an apron Thurs­day to cook up some yogurt-​​based ranch dress­ing with tele­vi­sion chef Tom Col­ic­chio at San Francisco’s Mis­sion High School to show sup­port for healthy food in schools.

The cook­ing demon­stra­tion was a far cry from real­ity TV food com­pe­ti­tions, Col­lic­chio — head judge on “Top Chef” — gave the food high marks.
“This is what you get in school?” Col­ic­chio asked assem­bled stu­dents as he tried the ranch dress­ing on a sam­ple size of turkey chef salad served in dis­trict cafe­te­rias. “This is awesome.”

San Fran­cisco con­tracts with Rev­o­lu­tion Foods, which uses whole grains and fresh pro­duce in its school break­fast, lunch and sup­per meals.
