With the special circumstances of COVID-19 we find ourselves in, the SLAS community and students are advised to stay home as much as possible. Our Wildcats Kitchen Cooking Class looks for productive and comforting ways to continue their learning at home. Our class has proven that cooking is a tried-and-true activity for not only keeping our students busy, but also acquiring valuable life skills. Students have shown commitment, confidence and creativity on following our cooking curriculum while gripping the challenges they are facing amidst their e-learning classes.
“Teaching cooking with my students online has given me a wonderful opportunity to reflect on my teaching skills and find innovative ways to deliver my course content that would cater to all my learners and their varying situations, despite time differences, locations, and technological issues. The experience has made me proud of how my cooking class students are overcoming challenges and still rising up to what is expected of them.” Darrell Desales – Culinary Arts
From learning how to prepare meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner using only a MUG in a Microwave, here’s a peek of how our aspiring chefs continue to be amazing with their cooking skills during their SLAS e-learning journey.
“I believe that this is a good opportunity to learn because soon we will be in a university and we have to know the basic cooking styles and dishes on our own. In conclusion, this cooking class makes me nervous but I believe that it has many more benefits than negatives to it because we will learn for the future”. – Dusan Marincovic G12
“The good thing was that I could see what everyone was making on the screen. This made me feel that I need to work hard because my classmates we’re doing it seriously. Also, I was able to use the equipment that I use every day. Lastly, I enjoyed live cooking session. Cooking in school is the best thing, but I also enjoyed live cooking sessions too.” – Hana Kiyota G12
“Last cooking class, we watched our cooking teacher Mr. D cooked mug pizza. I really like pizza, but I never thought we can cook it in our home. I have oven in our home, but I thought to make pizza require a lot of time and ingredients. I was really surprised with this recipe to cook mug pizza. I think this is perfect for people who live alone and not able to eat a whole pizza.” – Jade Seo G8
