Class Experience

Learners will learn to use knives, the oven, the stovetop, a toaster oven if preferred, pots and pans with liquids, and cooking utensils such as a spatula, spoon, and ladle.

Students will learn how to create four simple meals.
Mrs. B has been a teacher for almost 20 years. She has taught high school learners for 10 years and is passionate to include diverse learners in her classes. As a special education teacher, she has worked with many neurodiverse students and those with physical differences. As a mom of an autistic tween, she is particularly interested in helping students develop important, independent life skills such as advocacy, cooking, managing household tasks and navigating school and the world in general. Mrs. B grew up in a family of chefs and helped with her parents' catering business for many years. She continues to cook for her family, friends and coworkers and loves to pass on her knowledge to others.
Students will make one meal per week as part of the class. The preparation of each meal will take between 45-90 minutes depending on the pace of the learner and if they choose to purchase pre-cut or pre-cooked ingredients. Each recipe will have several choices so that learners and families can choose the level of difficulty that best fits their needs.
Students will be provided a handout each week that lists all ingredients, equipment, and instructions for each recipe. The video will be uploaded to the classroom as a private YouTube link. 

Kitchen Equipment Needed:
Knife set (with chopping knives for vegetables)
Pasta pot
