knights in the kitchen
How do we provide nutritious and delicious meals for our family?
The application of science concepts, concepts in biology, chemistry and physics are import to the study of foods. In Gourmet foods, students learn the relationship of science to foods, use of technology, nutrition, food safety and sanitation, time and resource management, foods and cultural diversity, contemporary trends and issues and the use of the My Plate guide. Hands-on activities in food preparation skills and techniques and in the actual planning, preparation, preservation and serving of nutritious meals encourage the development of positive interdependence, individual accountability, social skills and effective group functioning. Students use computers to analyze nutritional content of foods and to plan for special dietary needs. Students receive authentic feedback from other students and staff who sample their culinary creations.
