NC K-12 Culinary Institute for School Nutrition Managers - Summer 2017
North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, School Nutrition Services, in cooperation with Chef Cyndie Story and the K-12 Culinary Team, is providing the NC K-12 Culinary Institute in the Summer of 2017 for School Nutrition Managers who will become Chef Ambassadors.
Course Goals & Objectives
Instructional segments are planned for topics such as knife skills, weighing and measuring accurately, preparing foods for just-in-time service, work simplification and scheduling, effective use of equipment, and quality food preparation and service for a variety of meats, grains, fruits, vegetables, and condiments.
It is expected that the new Chef Ambassadors will take the concepts learned at the Institute and “Teach It Forward”. A “Teach it Forward” toolkit, including 15-minute modules or “Short Sets” on many of the topics, will be provided to the School Nutrition Manager participants so that they can return to the School Food Authority (SFA) as Chef Ambassadors and teach other managers and associates important food production and merchandising techniques. In addition, a limited amount of small equipment will be provided to assist with teaching upon return to the SFA.
Who Should Attend?
This opportunity is designed for School Nutrition Managers in charge of schools preparing and serving menus on-site to more than 100 students. Managers who are willing to return to their SFA and teach others should complete the application link below. Participants successfully completing the workshop and related duties will be eligible for a travel reimbursement of $185.00.
Please complete the application by April 1 so that we may complete the workshop assignments!
