Chef Gene and Jacy Eckerman created a curriculum and were able to establish a new CIC program in the High School in Spring of 2020! This is a four day, hands-on learning and cooking experience with the Freshman Health Class once a semester (so every Freshman will have the opportunity). The first day they learn the basics: knife skills, how to efficiently work in a kitchen, the difference between oils and a bit about vinegars and then prep a few veggies for the second day. They learn a handful of breakfast recipes, soup, salad, and sandwiches, and Chickpeas three ways! Each student gets their own CIC recipe book with all the recipes plus a few more as well as pantry items, tips in the kitchen, glossary and much more. This program will continue to grow into all four schools in years to come.
