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.
Students will make the class recipes and post about their results in the classroom. Students will also have discussion questions to answer as well as activities to complete about grocery shopping and recipes. Students will also be asked to clean up their work area and to taste test what they make!
An ingredient and cooking tools list will be provided by the teacher each week of the class. Items such as flour, sugar, butter, pumpkin puree, and more will be used in this class. Students can use a mixer, stand, handheld, or mix ingredients with mixing bowls and spoons. Baking dishes, measuring cups, measuring spoons are also examples of tools needed.

No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
