Creating a Cooking Club Curricula

ApprenticeGourmet | Aug 26, 2010 05:45 PM

I'm just about to enter my senior year of high school, and I have noticed a severe lack of cooking skills amongst my peers. To remedy this I am creating a cooking club to teach people the basics of cooking.

So I come to you, oh wise chowhounders, to help me refine my "lesson plan". My plan is to do most of the cooking outside of school but discuss choosing ingredients/knife skills/other tasks that don't immediately require food in school. Here is my current lesson plan (or order in which I will cover them).

1) Grains (rice, quinoa, pasta, couscous)
2) Vegetables
Roasting
Sauteing/caramelizing
Steaming
Potatoes
3) Salads
Vinaigrettes
Pairing ingredients
4) Chicken
Sauteing
Grilling
Roasting
5) Sauces and Marinades
6) Baking
Quickbreads
Cookies
Cakes
Pies
Bread
7) Meat
Roasting
Braising
Grilling
8) Seafood
Grilling
Sauteing
Baking
