I am the Food Studies teacher at Eagle Butte High School. In his #foodrevolution campaign, Jamie Oliver has been quoted as saying: “Every kid, in every school, no matter their background, deserves to learn the basics about food – where it comes from, how to cook it and how it affects their bodies. These life skills are as important as reading and writing, but they’ve been lost over the past few generations. We need to bring them back and bring up our kids to be streetwise about food.” My goal in Food Studies it to teach students the skills and techniques to gain confidence in the kitchen. It is my hope that through these skills I can inspire them to try new foods and explore all that the culinary world has to offer!
