Teaching cooking club - Junior High

luckycat | Jun 24, 2009 10:56 AM

Hi there -

I would love to get some input from people. I am a Junior High school teacher and I teach a cooking club for 6-8th grade students. I am moving schools next year and I am trying to make changes to what I'm doing.

Does anyone know of any reasonable cooking schools for kids? All of my kids are lower income and if we did this kind of thing, it would need to be reasonable.

I am also looking for good recipes for these kids. Any suggestions welcome.

I need to teach these kids from the ground up. In the past, I have had very experienced students and some that had never held a chef's knife before. I teach them knife techniques, how to use a host of appliances and a long list of recipes. As I look to design my class for next year, I really want this to be more organized.

Any suggestions?
