9/24/2015 Julia Child: Eat Your Heart Out
OLCHS is unique in that it continues to offer Culinary Arts classes. To enhance the benefits of this hands-on course, a brand new, state-of-the-art kitchen was constructed over the summer. Culinary Arts teacher Amy Cryan contributed to the ideas and layout of the kitchen, which now includes a teacher station for modeling and demonstrating techniques. This teacher island, also perfect for guest chefs, includes a backless range that allows for student viewing and is fully supplied with equipment. What the school's kitchens have lacked in the past is handicapped accessible features. The entrance door is handicapped accessible and directly to the right is an entire kitchen fitted with lower counters, sink, and cabinets. Cubbies are included in this area to ensure fire safety where all backpacks can be stored.
