9th - 12th Culinary Arts
Teacher: Aimee Harrison
This fun and informative course in culinary arts will explain and demonstrate the art of food preparation, cooking, and dish presentation. Students will learn about bread-making, basic kitchen and food safety, and tips on nutrition habits. Students will also be taught baking and cooking techniques which can be used in a variety of dishes, including how to use spices and sauces for proper seasoning. Additional topics the class will explore include, planning for a party and choosing your own menu, Cupcake Wars, properly setting the table with an assortment of techniques to fold napkins, making homemade pasta, cooking crepes, baking scones and making Devonshire cream or clotted cream.
I use ideas from a couple of books for class. They are, Cooking and Baking cookbooks by James Peterson and Guide to Good Food.
If your student has mild food allergies, I can usually work around the them. However, if your student is gluten sensitive or has Celiac Disease, this class will not be suitable for them.
