Cooking Methods Showcase

My honors students chose a cooking method to do their showcase project on.  They had a blast with this project!  They had to create their menu name and description, the recipe, cost per plate with mark-up, plate sketches, a poster about their method, and a plated meal.  As always, some turned out great, while other methods were a little harder to master.  Either way, the students enjoyed having their "own" creation and garnishes.  Enjoy some new photos of this project!
