Eating is Necessary, Cooking is an Art
Culinary Arts is designed around what you might know as the Jamie Oliver Project where students learn healthy recipes for life-based on foods they already like to eat.
The essential project based learning question is "How do we create meals our clients will enjoy using fresh ingredients that are local, environmentally and socially responsible for under $5.00 per meal?"
In answering that question students study healthy current food preparation techniques and rules, as well as understanding client service, food costs, nutritional standards and sustainability. The one question answered properly by students in their project production brings numerous skills to the table and gives opportunity for them to be creative at the same time.
