Meal Planning and Preparation

Arts | Culinary Arts
Grade: 9-12
Credits: 1

Meal Planning and Preparation offers students opportunities to develop cooking know-how. Students will practice standard cooking methods and be introduced to more advanced culinary techniques. We will cook two or three times each week. The textbook, Guide to Good Food, will support the class with basic cooking methods, techniques, common dilemmas, and best practice. Meal Planning and Preparation is linked to Service Learning, with projects including Empty Bowls for the Thetford Food Shelf and a Holiday Luncheon for the Thetford Elder Network.
