About

Cooking Skills and World Cuisine:
Our CS&WC classes are a 3rd-8th-grade program that engages students’ tastes and minds. This global class explores the culture and cuisine of nine countries. In the kitchen, young chefs learn how to follow a recipe, prepare, and cook ingredients. This class challenges students to use a wide variety of cooking equipment and ensures that they know how to safely and effectively use each tool, including chef’s knives, graters, peelers, stoves, and ovens. Graduates of this program are able to cook a balanced healthy meal.
