Hamlin’s New Food and Cooking Elective

This year, students participated in Hamlin’s new Food & Cooking elective. Girls learned all the basic skills required to cook delicious, homemade meals. They developed their own recipes and learned about various food topics, from seasonal produce and whole grains to the cultural histories and identities behind favorite dishes.

As the class wrapped up, the Grade 8 Food & Cooking elective invited the whole 8th grade to come taste what they made.

Below was the menu:

Soy glazed turkey meatballs with scallions and parsley
Tofu and pork dumplings with cabbage and carrots
Bean & Cheese burritos with homemade churros
Homemade pigs in a blanket and mac and cheese
Grilled teriyaki chicken skewers with veggie fried rice

Ten Grade 7 girls will be taking this elective in February.

Special thanks to Wanda M. Holland Greene who generously shared her kitchen with our students.
