FOODS AND NUTRITION 8
 
Foods 8 is an exploratory course intended to create an interest in Foods and Nutrition. On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • demonstrate skill in using the basic principles of food preparation;
  • demonstrate skills of proper measuring techniques;
  • use safe and sanitary habits in handling food and equipment.
 
 
FOODS 9
 
This course is very flexible and allows students to explore nutrition and food preparation through a hands on approach. This course provides many opportunities for students to actively prepare different kinds of dishes for themselves and others. Becoming a good cook or baker takes practice and by providing a lot of food labs students can examine their cooking/baking strengths and work on their weaknesses to better develop their culinary skills. I believe that food knowledge and skills will help students manage their lives more purposefully and effectively and enhance their personal well-being. Kitchen skills, safety and sanitation, meal planning, nutrition, careers in the food industry, environmental awareness, management of food resources, culture and food preparation will be developed through grades 9-12 and through foods lab experiences and conversations.
