On February 12, eight students and two staff members gathered in the H-building kitchens for the first-ever Confident Cook class. Students learned how to cook a chicken dinner and how to be good hosts when inviting guests to their homes.
The class, brainchild of bookstore manager Judy Beemer and English teacher Rachel Hozey, is designed to help students become more confident in the kitchen. “Hence the name,” Hozey said.
In addition to perfectly sautéing chicken breasts, students made chocolate mousse, fettuccine Alfredo with garlic, and a honey-Dijon vinaigrette and croutons to top a salad. Several staff members were invited to eat dinner with the cooks.
Hozey and Beemer would like to continue the classes and are considering “Build the Perfect Burger” as the theme for their next class.
