Whether you are interested in a career in the food industry, or just want to learn to cook for yourself, the Arts & Movement Cooking Class will inspire the Chef inside of you.
The Arts & Movement Cooking Class teaches life skills and serves as an occupational introduction to the world of cooking. Students learn about a variety of different occupations awaiting them in the food industry; both as a traditional cook and as an entrepreneur. They also learn basic knife skills and cooking techniques needed to cook for a family. Kitchen safety, as well as pathogen and food-born illnesses are covered as precursors to food certification. Students will learn all they need to know to immediately begin a career in the food industry.
As a recipe-based program, the A&MCC requires students to cook almost every day. Over 30 recipes will be created during the course of one semester. Each class is set up like a professional kitchen in which students complete daily preparatory lists and station duties, including maintaining and cleaning the tools and work space.
Students are required to use critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork to create their own recipes, convert liquid and dry measurements, and prepare complex dishes. The A&MCC provides opportunities to cook for the entire school, as well as field trips to professional kitchens and introductions to local restaurants and restaurateurs.
