Class Experience

During this class, the student will prepare a typical Puerto Rican entree - Rice with Chicken and Stewed Bean.  The learning goals are that each student will follow the recipe, work safely around the kitchen, measure, mix ingredients and cook the dish. We all learn by doing so I will demonstrate the process so that after my demonstration each student will be able to feel confident and properly execute the step.

Ingredients that are needed to complete the two dishes: Ingredients • Canola oil • Cooking ham - (*) – If you do not eat pork, you can substitute the pork ham for turkey ham. • Boneless skinless chicken thighs • Adobo Goya – with or without pepper • Sazon Goya • Tomato paste • Chicken broth • Chicken bouillon • Long grain rice • Aluminum Foil • For the sofrito: • Garlic cloves • Culanto leaves • Green pepper • Onion • Note: Culantro is found in Spanish Supermarkets or Asian markets. In Asian Markets it is known as Chinese Parsley or Coriander leaves. If you cannot find culantro, you can replace with 1 cup of chopped Cilantro. 1 can of Pinto or Red Beans Frozen Butternut Squash 1. This meal serves for four people
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Cooking is a creative adventure, but there is a process that needs to be followed that will end in a delicious edible product.  Students will learn how to cook in a safe environment but this can only be accomplished if a parent or an adult is present at all times since we will be working with knives and heat.  Safety is my #1 priority, and I will teach the proper way to use these utensils in a step by step basis. A kitchen safety handout is provided to review before the cooking session.
