Culinary Arts

Description: This is a fun and informative course in culinary arts will explain and demonstrate the art of food preparation, cooking, and dish presentation. High school 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.

Lynn grew up in Pennsylvania as a PK (preacher's kid) until after graduation when she joined the Army. She has lived in Virginia since 1997 but still claims her Yankee roots. Lynn has an AA degree in Psychology from Allegany College in Cumberland, MD then followed her true passion by earning a Culinary Arts degree from Johnson & Wales University, Norfolk VA campus class of 2003.
