To kick off The Inspiration Academy’s Culinary Arts Module training this school year, TIA students have been touring the Arizona Culinary Institute in Scottsdale to learn about culinary arts schooling opportunities they may wish to pursue. In the coming weeks, TIA students will begin their own cooking classes with Debbie J. Elder, founder of Culinary Curator. TIA’s Culinary Arts Module allows students to learn the basics of food preparation and explore the art and science of cooking and baking. It includes healthy meal planning and artistic presentation. In preparation for these cooking classes, all TIA staff and students study, test, and earn their full Food Handlers Certification Cards. TIA students this year will be cooking, serving, and running a number of events as part of their training during September, October, and November.
