Love to watch the Food Network, and test out the recipes in the kitchen; then this is the course for you. Culinary Arts is the study of basic cooking skills and nutrition. Student cooking labs and teacher demonstration provide practical experience in helping students apply nutrition knowledge and food safety and sanitation to everyday living. Students will develop skills in menu planning, food purchasing, preparation and service. Students will also learn about the nutrients in foods and their function. Students will have the opportunity to study and analyze their personal diet using the government’s food plate web site. Some of the foods prepared and concepts taught include; quick breads, cookies, fruits and vegetables, milk products and meats. You can find several of the recipes that we cook in this class on my website under the Resources Link.
