Students will improve their ability to multi-task based on their current level of skills and experience. Students will learn a methodology in thinking and performing multiple steps of a recipe. Students will learn about proportions and measurements as it relates to the class topic(s). Students will learn about new ingredients and kitchen tools and equipment. Cooking participants will learn how to manage their time in the kitchen while practicing their skills and remaining attentive to the teacher’s instructions.
Homework Offered
Three assignments will be given at the end of each session (refer to the course topic outline). Because this is a filled cake that is best made step by step, students may complete assignments following an alternative timeline where the cake will be baked and finished during Week Three (refer to details under Week Three on Page 2 of lesson packet). Cooking participants will let the teacher know if they plan to follow an alternate timeline upon enrollment.
