For this Challenge, My Culinary classes will keep track of all recipes and things they cook in lab and at home. (edible homework) At the end of the year, they will use Canva to create a Class Cookbook with all of their unique recipes. For instance, we do several cooking challenges with appetizers, desserts, and small meals they can make. They will use Canva to feature each recipe, the ingredients, and the process of making their food/snacks/desserts. After compiling and printing an “example pilot Cookbook”, these students can then sell it to staff and family to be put back into the program to be used for them.
This cookbook will also feature anything they make in lab, such as the Apple Pies at Thanksgiving, Crepes, Tortillas, Cookies, Cakes, and their home made pizzas.
