August 26 - September 13

Students taking nutrition and wellness will be introduced to the course, fill out a list of potential dishes to cook, and tour the kitchen.  We will work out of Chapter 1 and 2 in our textbook, "A Guide to Food" and complete activities related to the chapter.  Students will learn about safety and cleanliness in the kitchen as we begin our cooking lessons.  Our goal is to teach students how to make healthy, cost-effective meals that they can reproduce as they move into their adult life.
