Students will improve their knowledge of food preparation and learn about the cuisine of the four countries. The dishes prepared will be suitable for their family's meals. They will learn food safety, how to properly measure ingredients and learn about these cultures. We will teach safety in the kitchen.

I have taught this class from pre-school through high school students.l. I have also taught French as well as living there.
The students will set up ingredients before class. (mise en place)
Recipes will be sent in advance of the class. For week one parents will need to provide rice, a rice cooker if you have one or pan to cook rice in. They can have a protein option like bacon, ham, seafood,ham, ground beef, and egg. Vegetables could be onions, peas, carrots, broccoli. Soy sauce and some type of oil is needed. Sesame oil is optional. This recipe is flexible and they can use a variety of ingredients with success.
By the finished product taste and appearance. Their family members will be able to grade them.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I need to know food allergies. All recipes can be altered to suit different diets. Let me know in advance how I need to change the recipe. Also since we use stoves, knives and other potentially dangerous equipment, please provide your child with the amount of assistance that is appropriate to their maturity level. I am many miles away from some of you, so your help is deeply appreciated in making this class a great learning experience for your child.
