My Students

My students are the best! Everybody loves to eat, but only a handful actually like to cook! Well, I have that handful! From creating dishes, to taking charge of the kitchen...I have the opportunity to introduce Culinary Arts to my high School Students.

Laugh.

Cook. Enjoy.... That is our motto in our culinary lab. We have fun, we joke, but we are about business. Teaching the kids about the foodservice industry is vital for our economy. Training them with skills will last them a lifetime, not only for a profession, but in their personal lives as well.

My Project

Many times in the culinary lab (kitchen) we do large scale productions of food for catering projects. If we have to bake large batches of cookies, the preferred weight measurement is will be in grams. A cup of flour is not the same when you have 5 different students measuring for a recipe. Some students will fill the cup halfway, and other will have the flour spilling over!

Having the students understand the significant difference between preparing for 25 guests, to 250 guests, will enable them to use the appropriate measuring device to achieve a consistent product.

Digital scales will be an invaluable resource to our kitchen. I currently have one that I bought to share between the 8 groups of 5! ( yes, a large class!!) When we do our baking unit, it is crucial.

We have a school bistro in which we make fresh pastries, and our products MUST be consistent, or no business for our bistro!! The digital thermometers will be an added bonus! I teach them how to check the temperature on products to be sure, because, " just because they look done, they may not be done!"
