Grade 7, 8 Semester
This popular fast paced gourmet foods course is for students who have mastered the basics and want to refine their cooking skills. The first quarter will focus on “A taste of America” where students will go on a food related “journey” studying foods, culture and preparing regional recipes of the United States. The following quarter will be spent exploring international culture, cuisine, and preparing selected recipes of the world. Examples of past cooking labs are Herb & Spice Experimentation, Spanikopita, Homemade Sriracha Sauce, California Rolls, Chowder, various types of Pizza, Empanadas, Bolani, Crab Cakes, Ban Mi, Enchiladas, Philly Cheesesteak, Butter Chicken, and a chocolate Dessert Buffet. Popular Cooking Competitions, such as the Sweet & Savory Crepe Contest, Cupcake Wars, and the Amazing Food Truck Race are fun creative ways to collaborate together in kitchen groups to create delicious entrees judged by Greene staff or parents. An international luncheon may be planned, prepared, and served to selected staff members and students.
