We have our first lab this week: real hot chocolate. Kitchen groups got to choose between mint, mocha, malted and Mexican spice flavour. We will also have a chocolate lesson and tasting where students will try six different types of chocolate and take notes on the flavour of each.
Reminder to students that the signed welcome letters were due back last Friday, Sept. 17 (you can download a copy here (this is important for students with allergies or food restrictions).
Copies of all recipes can be found under the "Food Studies Recipes" tab at the top of this page.
SAFETY, SANITATION and START-UP
This week we reviewed safety, sanitation and start-up. We watched a series of short videos to review main kitchen safety and sanitation topics then completed a kitchen tools treasure hunt activity. Our first lab will be next week.
Welcome to a new year of exploratory classes at RMS!
This week students will spend time getting to know their classmates and the daily routines in the Food Studies class. We will also begin navigating the enhanced safety and sanitation procedures that are an important part of our classroom learning this year. We will also go through the course outline and students will be given a welcome letter to share with their parent/guardian. This letter must be signed and returned in order for students to participate in upcoming cooking labs.
