Today we visited The Culinary Literacy Center, located on the 4th floor of Parkway Central. What beautiful kitchen classroom! The students learned about different elements and how they transform what we eat. We pickled and caramelized, and learned how basic elements like salt and acid transform our food. After preparing caramelized cabbage and quickles, we enjoyed our food with some delicious hot dogs!
We also got a look into the processes behind the rare books section of the library. We learned that books are organic, what they are made of now and long ago, and how rare book collectors preserve books. We even had a chance to preserve our own books after a “flood.”
Thank you to Ms. Shaaban, Ms. Post, and Ms. Zinshtein for being wonderful hands on chaperones!
