LA Code: 

In this course, we'll learn how to make interesting, yummy dishes from all over the world, by focusing on specific cooking techniques and kitchen skills. Hey Beth, how do you make pizza dough? How do I work with pastry? What are the steps in making sauce? How many ways can I prepare a vegetable, and when did vegetables become yummy?!

There will be a 50:50 classroom to kitchen ratio in this class, as well as a high expectation of attention and care. You'll also be creating your own cookbook, incorporating skills of recipe making and budgeting. This will be a significant and ongoing project that we work on through the course of the term.

As we are in the kitchen, a high level of discipline will be an essential component of your involvement in the class. Because of this, there will be no devices allowed in the kitchen, and very minimal use in the classroom, if any at all. Please be aware that you will be required to demonstrate your willingness to learn and follow the rules and regulations that will be in place in the kitchen.

This course will have a cost of $40/term. This will be charged to your school account, and will cover the cost of ingredients for the dishes we make. You'll be able to take the food home to share!

If you like the sound of learning about culinary techniques and improving your skills in the kitchen, come along!

This class is targetted at students in Years 7 and 8. If this isn't you, please come and see Beth before joining the class.
