Mrs. Kate Lane firstname.lastname@example.org This course approaches food by studying the diversities and commonalities of cultures, history, geographies and people. In this course, students gain confidence in culinary skills through the selection and preparation of healthy foods from their own and other cultures. Using the USDA My Pyramid, students analyze the nutritional strengths and weaknesses of their own eating habits. Recipe Conversions, basic cooking terms and kitchen skills as well as food preparation techniques are incorporated. Students will prepare and sample foods from around the world .
