    Are you adventurous?  Do you like to travel?  Do you find other people’s customs and traditions interesting?  Do you like to cook?  If you answered yes to these questions, then join us as we cook our way around the world!  The influence of culture on foreign and American cuisine is the focus of this course.  First, we will explore regional cooking in the United States, including Tex-Mex, Creole, Cajun, Southern, New England and Western  foods.  Then we’ll take our taste buds abroad to learn about food customs and traditions in other countries such as France, Italy, Germany, England, Ireland, Greece, China, and Japan to name a few.  This course is great for students wishing to expand their cooking know-how and taste experiences.  Students who enjoy Social Studies and Foreign Languages may find this course especially interesting.
