Course Description:

In this hands – on, interactive cooking class your students will learn about not only food preparation, but meal planning, reading recipes, measuring and converting ingredients, reading and understanding food labels, how to make healthy food choices, and how to use various methods of food preparation. Each week we will prepare at least one recipe. Recipes will include main dishes, side dishes, soups, salads, baked goods, and of course desserts! We will be incorporating recipes from around the world. This class is a perfect compliment to World Geography. Food and kitchen safety will also be stressed, along with the important step of cleaning up! Students will need to bring some basic cooking tools to class from time to time. I will supply a complete list before classes begin. Most likely, they will all be things you already have at home. I would ask that if your student has food allergies that you let me know upon registration. This will be a fun and productive way for your student to gain an elective credit. This is a full year class worth 2 credits.

I will be taking an enrollment fee of $25 along with the $30 supply fee. The enrollment fee is included in the price of the tuition. You would only owe $100 for the remainder of the semester. Both the enrollment fee and supply fee are non-refundable.

Minimum students to hold the class is 5 / maximum is 12.
