Culinary means related to the kitchen. It includes all food preparation including cooking, baking, salads, drinks, and more.
All students should have an opportunity for essential culinary education so they learn how to safely prepare food for themselves and their family. Students who are interested in achieving more should have an opportunity to practice and compete but this may not be available in all schools and may have to be an after-school activity. However, if a school has a kitchen it can host evening cooking classes.
