Class Experience

By the end of the class, each student will be able to:
-create a meal plan for four meals by analyzing what is needed for each recipe
-demonstrate ability to make a variety of new recipes
-identify what is in a well stocked pantry
-how to select fresh ingredients such as produce and herbs
-model basic knife safety
Since my twins were extremely young, they have always been in the kitchen with me cooking and creating. We learned to adapt recipes to fit our dietary needs as one of my daughters was diagnosed with severe food allergies as a toddler. 
In all the Dinner Time Magic classes, students have homework. They have to try what they made! Students will also be asked to clean up their work area. Since this is a flex class, students will need to post photos and or videos of their completed shopping lists, menu plans, and recipes each week. 
Students will need access to grocery store websites, recipe websites, and cookbooks. In addition, supplemental material will be used via EdPuzzle. In addition, students will need basic cooking tools and the ingredients for each recipe. Each week, the recipes and shopping lists will be posted on Monday.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • EdPuzzle
  • YouTube
  • Grocery store websites
  • Recipe websites
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
By enrolling in the class, families accept full responsibility for their learner's safety which includes but not limited to kitchen materials and the ingredients. 

Parental guidance is requested/needed in assisting the student in the kitchen as students will be using items like a stove, oven, knives, etc.  Families are responsible for student safety in the kitchen 

Families are responsible for making necessary changes to recipes to avoid allergens. Families need to notify Erin Girard ASAP about any potential allergies. Substitutions can be made for a majority of the recipes. Each family is responsible for knowing what ingredients their family can have. Please contact the instructor for any questions.
