Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
By the end of each class, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate kitchen safety
2. Prepare a recipe from start to finish
3. Describe the process for each recipe
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. As one of the first educators on Outschool to offer cooking and baking, I have taught many learners over the past 3. and half years. 
In all the Wild About Cooking classes, students have homework. They have to try what they made! Students will also be asked to clean up their work area
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will need basic kitchen tools (pans, pots, cookie sheets, mixing bowl, measuring instruments, stove, oven etc) and pantry items. While a stand or hand mixer is not necessary, it can be very helpful to have. While some recipes at times list a hand or stand mixer, students can also use a mixing spoon and bowl for those baking recipes. An ingredient and cooking tools list will be provided by the teacher upon enrollment of the class located in the classroom. Each week the ingredient and tool list will be provided for the following class.The supply list will be posted by 5 pm PST on Sunday for the upcoming week.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
By enrolling in the class, families accept full responsibility for their learner's safety which includes but not limited to kitchen materials and the ingredients. 

Parental guidance is requested/needed in assisting the student in the kitchen as students will be using items like a stove, oven, knives, etc.  Outschool policy is that parents remain off camera and only the enrolled learner may participate. Families are responsible for student safety in the kitchen 

Families are responsible for making necessary changes to recipes to avoid allergens. Families need to notify Erin Girard ASAP about any potential allergies. Substitutions can be made for a majority of the recipes. Each family is responsible for knowing what ingredients their family can have. Please contact the instructor for any questions. 

There is a student minimum in this class. Please share the class with others. If the minimum number is not met within 72 hours of the class, the class will either a) pushed back to start at a later date or b) canceled. Ingredient lists will be posted by Sunday and refunds will not be possible after the posting for that week.

In any of the baking classes or classes that require additional cooking time past the class time, the class will end when the item is placed in the oven and the timer is set for the allotted time or the item will finish cooking after the class is over. Students are instructed on how to tell if an item is fully baked/cooked.
