Culinary Arts and Health

     Culinary means "related to cooking". It is the art of the preparation, cooking and presentation of food. In today’s fast paced society, many people have taken to ordering pre-made and packaged foods. Within the 21st Century Education Culinary section we teach our students how to make healthy meals and snacks.

     During culinary time we had been cooking a lot of different things  like Pasta Salad, Falafel, Spinach Smoothies, Ham and Pineapple Pinwheels , Butter, Sugar Doughnuts, Egg-less Stuffed French Toast Roll Ups, just to mention a few, and of course we can't forget to mention that we also taught our students how to make homemade hummus.

     The students were able to get hands on practice in utilizing different math measuring skills where each student was provided a notebook where they made records of their recipes. They also transferred some recipes into their own computer account.

  With the world and technology being what it is, we are finding that it’s more important than ever to teach and promote healthy habits that include regular exercise. Activities requiring physical effort, carried out especially to sustain or improve health and fitness are encouraged within the 21st century program.
