New Course: Food Studies 12

We are excited to now be offering Foods Studies 12.

The focus in this course is choice, reflection and the cycle of design. Students will be required to cook many items in their home kitchen, taking pictures of required steps as well as reflecting on their food product(s), health and safety considerations and making processes after each lab.
