Mrs. Vidic's 4th period class has been working hard and honing their cooking skills with culinary creations like smoothies, frittatas, seasoned potatoes, and cookies. Today they shared samples of this delicious food with our Carol Stream firefighters as a way to thank them for their service.
Mrs. Vidic shows the visiting firefighters the food her 8th graders have made for them.
One of the skills students practice is that of mincing. They focus on safe handling of the knives and proper positioning to prepare the veggies for the frittata.
Another skill students have learned is rolling out cookie dough.
They use flour to make sure the dough does not stick to the rolling pin and cookie cutter.
Students enjoy frosting the cookies.
The best part of learning about cooking and baking is taste testing! Don't worry - their hands are clean!
