Indoor School Activities

1.Cooking class: 

“ Food is our common ground, a universal experience”……… James Beard saying…. Aha… yes,’ A great truth!’

Cooking art or Culinary art is a programme designed as an introduction to the culinary environment. ESS uses a well- equipped kitchen-like classroom and equipped bistro as a learning laboratory. Cooking with children in school promotes life-time skills  of healthy cooking starting at a young age. ESS believes youth who lack healthy cooking knowledge may rely on packaged foods containing questionable value! Children tend to skip less healthy processed snacks if they know how to prepare their own food. While kneading, tossing, pouring, smelling, cutting, filling foods students have fun and learn!

In ESS cooking room, teachers usually  help students focusing  on the following :     (i)Basic  cooking method (ii) Safety and sanitation(iii) Menu creating and costing

(iv) Basic food preparation like sandwiches, milkshake, pan cake, burgers, fruit salad, pasta, custard etc.                                                                                                           ESS prompts to create future allrounders  keeping pace with trendy people all over the world… so cooking class is launched!
