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.
3) To enjoy and appreciate the preparations and presentation of food.
4) To develop management and consumer skills.

We know that "you are what you eat!" Students will develop knowledge of the nature of food and nutrition, as well as, skill in the preparation, and presentation of food. Success in preparing food depends on understanding recipes and equipment, care in handling food, in addition to safe and efficient work habits.
