This course is designed to prepare students to become self-sufficient in the kitchen in all aspects from planning, preparation, and nutrition. Food, nutrition, and wellness continually change to reflect the realities of today’s world. Teens need to find time for healthy meals in a tightly scheduled day, as they sort through the ever-expanding options in the supermarket, at the fast food counter, and on the internet. This class will teach students how to make healthy and informed food related decisions that contribute to wellness over their lifetime. The first half of the course is dedicated to learning the fundamentals of nutrition. The second half of the semester connects the culinary concepts with nutrition/meal management in preparing wholesome, nutrient-rich recipes.
