While this is a food-oriented class, food is used as a scientific medium. Nutrition and Diet are not part of this curriculum.
This class requires some preparation in advance: it is essential that the learner collects the ingredients and equipment listed in the mise-en-place before the class begins. Chef JoAnna is always available for questions, but not in the last 60 minutes before class. 

N̳o̳t̳e̳:  
*** Chef will let you know if any food prep must be done in advance. 
*** D̳o̳n̳'̳t̳ c̳u̳t̳/̳c̳o̳o̳k̳ a̳n̳y̳t̳h̳i̳n̳g̳ until instructed!
 
 3 files available upon enrollment
Supplies include various dairy or non-dairy products which should be available at any grocery store, chocolate syrup (Hershey's or other, or can be home-made), glasses, spoons, measuring tools (a scale is best!), and something to identify the different specimens (you can write on painter's tape, or attach paper tags with tape.) You need something to write with too. If you want to work along with the chef, you must purchase groceries in advance. Please allow adequate time to check your refrigerator and pantry, and to go to the store if needed. If a learner can't get the ingredients or equipment in time, they can still participate in everything in class besides the cooking part, and they make the recipe at a later time. (No transfers/credits/refunds allowed within 24 hrs of a scheduled class.) ******* IMPORTANT: Policy on Class Handouts: All printables will be posted to the "classroom" tab in PDF format. It's your responsibility to log on and print/write down this information, or have it available on another device. a) Thur/Fri/Sat classes -- posted SUNDAYS b) Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed classes -- posted THURSDAYS c) Recipes are uploaded AFTER each class. ******* Most foods should be available at most major grocery stores. I gently remind you that Michelangelo didn't learn to sculpt on Cararra marble, so I endorse purchasing inexpensive/store-brand/conventionally grown foods, which are perfectly adequate for cooking lessons. If you can't locate the exact food/tool, but you have something you think is close, message me! I'll help you make a substitution. (I have a heavy teaching schedule, so don't wait until the last minute! I can't promise I'll be available for 60 minutes before any class.) * Descriptions of Chef's preference for tools are included at CuisineConnection.com. You buy them anywhere you like, but for your convenience, they are available for purchase directly through Amazon.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Informal assessment. If a grade is required, or if it is to the student's benefit to submit a written report to meet another class's requirements, I'm happy to oblige!  Printable (PDF) Certificate of Completion upon request!
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
• Learners must be comfortable using a knife and a stove.
• Parental supervision is essential for safety.

ALLERGY STATEMENT: We use food in these classes. Lessons may call for items that include common allergens such as Dairy, Eggs, Fish, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Wheat, and Soy. If the learner has dietary restrictions, please contact Chef JoAnna and she may be able to suggest ways to adapt the recipe, typically by substitution, or omission of the allergen. (Requires at least 48 hours' notice.) Not all recipes can be adapted. Chef JoAnna does not have the ability to ensure that the items you purchase will be completely free of allergens. It's up to the adults responsible for each learner to ensure that products brought into the learners' kitchens are allergen-free.
To ensure an interactive, safe learning environment, I request all students have a working camera and microphone, and that they are left on for the duration of each class. If this isn't feasible for one reason or another, a parent should contact me ahead of time to let me know. I am happy to work with each student to make sure they feel comfortable!
All "handouts" and worksheets needed will be provided, delivered via PDF format.
