Teaching Food Preparation

Culinary Arts is Fun! Some interesting facts:

  1. Cooking, once considered a woman's job, now has more men in the culinary profession than women.

  2. Americans spend a combined $8 billion eating out on Valentines Day.

  3. Boston is home to the oldest restaurant in the U.S.

  4. The word "restaurant" is French for "restoring."

  5. Did you know that Chefs that want to be certified by the American Culinary Foundation must work at least 3 years as an executive sous chef, a chef de cuisine, or a pastry chef.

Cooking is beneficial for kids because it supports: 1. Math Skills: Doubling a recipe requires addition (or multiplication) skills, halving it requires division, and recipe fractions like 1/2 cup and 3/4 teaspoon bring math applications into the kitchen. Often, kids don't recognize they are practicing math! 2. Comprehension: Reading and understanding step-by-step directions, adding ingredients in sequence, and techniques such as folding and blending, are all important components to yielding the finished food product. Helping your child fine tune his reading comprehension skills at the same time doesn't hurt! 3. Real Life Science: Cooking is a science experiment. Too much salt, baking powder, not enough flour, or the wrong timing and you're likely to have a flop on your hands. Cooking provides an opportunity for kids to get hands-on experience with basic science. 4. Self-Esteem: Cooking allows kids to get instant feedback, which helps them learn and grow in self-knowledge. Learning a new skill, such as baking or cooking, is known to help grade school children with healthy self-esteem development.

We all know hospitality is essential in our everyday lives and as the "Golden Rule" states in Matthew 7:12 (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you) when duplicated in

the likeness of Christ extraordinary things happen.
