Foods

The overriding focus will be:

1) Design (a solution)
2) Create (a product) 
3) Appraise (a product)
4) Articulate (knowledge & skills used or gained)

Students will spend most of their time in a team situation though there will be ample opportunity for individual work. The course objectives are:

1) To become familiar with basic cookery techniques as required for the individual and for group of individuals.
2) To become familiar with nutrition and applications of it’s principles to a healthy diet.

Success in preparing food depends on understanding recipes and equipment, care in handling food, in addition to safe and efficient work habits.
