Bridge Academy

Psalm 32:8

Culinary Arts II

Teacher: Aimee Harrison (aorjharrison@comcast.net)


Description: This class digs a little deeper than the middle and high school Culinary Arts classes. It will allow students to learn about the different chefs and how they have impacted the culinary world. From each chef studied, the students will choose a recipe and prepare it in class. We will learn about the different type of spices and how to perk up flavors in dishes that might be looked at as "plain Janes". We will study dry and moist cooking methods, gain knowledge about the history of the culinary world: who have been the trendsetters, who are some of the food entrepreneurs and how they have influenced today's chefs. All three Culinary Arts classes (MS, HS, and CA II) will have equal baking time. This is not a "stand alone" course: it is required that a middle or high school Culinary Arts class be taken prior to this class. This class is open to 8th-12th grade students.

Required Supplies: A chef's Knife, Apron

Students: Minimum-5 Maximum-10

Class/Copy Fee: $70.00

Tuition: $360.00 ($36.00 per month for 10 months, August- May)
