All students at Boston Higashi School Residential Program participate in Culinary Art Classes. The lessons for the younger division students are focused on “Basic Baking Skills” and “Fun”. Students learn how to use measuring spoons, how to crack an egg, mix ingredients in a bowl and so much more.
When students move up to older divisions, they begin to learn to fix their dinner. They learn more practical and advanced skills, such as using a can opener, how to use a peeler, operating a microwave while following directions, using knives to cut ingredients, using stoves and an oven to cook. Recipes are made by the Culinary Art Activity Leader and each step has visuals taking into consideration each students’ age, skill level and interests. During the summer season, our students also learn how to grill outside and enjoy cookouts. This provides them with the skills to be able to enjoy the season with their family at home or at parties.
