Description

Class Experience

Students will build life skills as they learn about kitchen equipment and techniques.  They will learn food safety in handling some ingredients and when working appliances.  They will learn the science behind yeast and why it makes foods so yummy.  They will learn about a variety of flours and how each one affects the outcome of the dish.  
Students in this class will learn how to make delicious breakfast/brunch pastries that are sure to pleas.  They will learn the history behind some of their favorite foods and even foods they may have never heard of.  We will have a little history lesson as we discuss the Acadians and the culture and foods that they brought with them from Nova Scotia and how they influence Louisiana cooking even today.  Finally students will learn how to make a simple pie crust from items they usually have in the pantry.  They will learn the special techniques that ensure the most delicious and flaky outcomes.  They will be shown a variety of fillings that make these pies real show stoppers.
I have been a home cook for over 40 years and cook 80% of what I cook from scratch.  I have been teaching cooking classes for outschool for a year.
There is no homework for this class, however it is recommended that students prep ingredients prior to class meetings.
Ingredients for each dish:
Pizza- All Purpose Flour, Yeast, sugar, olive oil, salt, Sauce (white or red), toppings and cheese (optional)

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There is nothing violent about this class, however, students will use some kitchen equipment that might be considered dangerous.  
We may be cooking with ingredients that are allergens such as wheat, soy, gluten or nuts.  Parental guidance is suggested.
