Who wouldn’t benefit from a practical introduction to cooking? There is more to know than most novices realize. Along with learning to cook all types of food comes budgeting, organizing, and entertaining. This one-semester course covers it all—even nutrition and etiquette. The final project is a dinner party that pulls together everything learned during the course.
Three special features in the text are valuable helps. The “Something to Try!” sections encourage additional practice in the kitchen. The “Tips and Techniques” sections are quick references for proper procedures. The periodic reviews reinforce the learning. This course is a great mixture of learning and doing everything you need to know about entertaining with confidence and extending hospitality to others.
The lab manual, also a necessary part of this course, includes 14 lab report sheets, evaluations, and recipes. Designed to be used for one semester in grades 11–12.
