Hands - On Culinary Experience


D227 Parents, 

Rich Township High School District 227 would like to invite you to come enjoy a FREE hands-on culinary experience in our Rich South Culinary Kitchen taught by District 227 Culinary Superstar Chef Mark Crawford. Each session will teach critical skills. Be empowered with the skills you need to be a star in your own kitchen.

Critical Skills

  • Parents walk away with complete recipes, a D227 apron, and tangible skills that can be implemented the very next day
  • Parents learn how to save money on food costs
  • Course will highlight the role of key nutrients in child development, behavior, learning, and mood
  • Classes never repeat, and focus on seasonal foods, healthy diets, busy schedules, and picky eaters
  • Any level of cooking experience is welcomed and supported

Course Skills:

Each course will include basic culinary laboratory meeting experiences to develop knowledge and understanding of basic food principles and applied nutrition.

The course content includes preparation techniques, meal planning nutritional concepts, meeting health and safety needs, maximizing resources when planning, preparing and serving food, and analyzing individual and family nutritional needs.

Please visit the District website to access the Eventbrite registration links for each Saturday session.

Registration is open to all D227 parents of currently enrolled students at any D227 campus Rich Central, Rich East, or Rich South.
