My Students

The students in this Career Technical Education course will prepare the students for a Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management. Through hands-on activities and in-depth study of the culinary arts field, this course helps students hone their cooking skills and gives them the opportunity to explore careers in the food industry. The school is over 70% low income households looking for a alternative to colleges and universities. In this course, students learn all about food, including food culture, food history, food safety, and current food trends. They have hands on learning in our Culinary Lab.

My Project

These pieces of equipment are necessary to teach certain skills that we cannot correctly teach because we do not have the required equipment.

With this equipment I can show the students proper knife handling skills and cuts.

We will be able to roll-out dough's with the rolling pins for pastas, pie crust and puff pastries. The scales will allow the student to accurately measure from 1 oz to 11 pounds or from 1 gram to 7 kilos.

We have some equipment but lack the necessary supplies to make the class function productively. My students are really excited about having this course and look forward to showing off their cooking skills in culinary competitions and during school sponsored events.
