Students will enjoy making flavorful fall recipes and family favorites that feature a variety of fruits, vegetables, and fresh ingredients. Fall Fare recipes are selected to be nutritious, fun, and simple to make. Each class will focus on a portion of a meal including appetizer, salad, soup, side dish, main dish, and dessert. The Compass chefs' culinary adventures will include:
-Appetizer- Bite-Sized Cheese Balls
-Salad- Coconut Cous Cous
-Soup- Pesto Potatoes
-Entree- Salmon Yakitori
-Side- Pumpkin Pizza
-Dessert- Autumn Fruit Bread

Students will be eating what they make each week and bringing home the recipes and leftovers. These engaging cooking classes will get students excited about helping in the kitchen, experimenting, and trying new foods. Students will be exposed to healthy ingredients they may not regularly eat. They will learn important kitchen skills such as safety, sanitation, measuring, knife skills, and other tricks of the trade. Culinary vocabulary and terms are introduced each week, with no-pressure verbal review of those words the following week.
