Class Experience

1. How to prepare the Jamaican inspired dishes from beginning to end, by reading and following a recipe. 
2. Learn fun facts about Jamaica.
During my 22 years as an elementary school teacher, I have taught hundreds of students and always strive to make learning fun and exciting. This class is especially special  to me because my husband is Jamaican and my family has traveled to this beautiful island five times. Additionally, for the past seven years, my husband and I have been the owners of a catering company that specializes in Jamaican cuisine. Jamaican food is a staple in my home, and I’m excited to share my love of this delicious food with learners! 
Day 1: Main dish - Jammin Jamaican Beef Patties 
1 lb. of ground beef (IMPORTANT - please make sure your learner cooks/browns and drains the ground beef BEFORE class)
Beef or chicken bouillon powder (or cube)
Vegetable or olive oil
Dried thyme
Garlic (minced or powder)
Curry powder 
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped                                                                                      
2 sheets of frozen puff pastry (be sure they are thawed)
1 egg
Optional: chili powder 
Large Spoon
Pastry brush
Rolling pin

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to time limitations, the actual baking of the patties will occur after class. 

Day 2: Side dishes -  Fabulous Fried Plantain and Caribbean Coleslaw

*** The complete ingredients/supplies lists for Days 2 and 3 will be available in the Outschool classroom, upon enrollment. 

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please check the ingredients list carefully to ensure that your learner is not allergic to any of the ingredients. Also, safety is extremely important to me. Please ensure that you are nearby and available to help if needed, when your learner is using the knife, as well as  the stove and oven.
