Baking & Culinary Arts

This class is for students who are looking for foundations in both Baking and Culinary Arts. We will use Semester 1 to learn about the basics of Baking to include wet & dry measurements, basic doughs for breads & cookies, favorite holiday treats and so much more.

During Semester 2, we will study MyPlate and how to make healthy choices from all of the 5 Groups. We will prepare foods that are familiar but also stretch our palates with new options. Class rule is "1 no thank-you bite" so being open-minded is required. We will stand in the kitchen during the entire class period and use multiple tools & equipment, so safety and maturity are required.

*Students with food allergies are not recommended for this class.

Lynn Snipes

A.A. in Psychology and Culinary Arts

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. Lynn has worked in the food world as a barista, sweets baker, fine dining, B&B breakfast chef, prepared food production and instructor for SCCA co-op & Edible Education. I love to share food knowledge with the "1 no-thank you bite" rule to expand the tasting palate. My husband Phil & I have 2 sons Caleb & Eli who are both students at Bridge Academy.
