Culinary Syllabus (J-Term post #4)

Here's Ki's Syllabus for Culinary Arts Class. I am trying/hoping to arrange a field trip to a nearby culinary school for him, but it's not on the sylabus, as it's confirmed yet. Ki likes to have a schedule of events & lessons. I like to make syllabi for himm during J-term (a little facier than the weekly lists I make for him the rest of the year) The last half is more open ended as Ki will be able to make some choices by then, about what things he wants to do for the class.

CULINARY ARTS
