Veeta’s Vegan Cooking Classes at TIA Begins

Students of The Inspiration Academy have begun formal cooking lessons in our Culinary Arts Module program with Veeta’s Vegan. Both Veeta and Jonathan led a wonderful first cooking lesson for our students. These lessons will continue each Monday over the next several weeks.

In Veeta’s first lesson, students were introduced to proper safety measures. Students then learned about the French phrase “Mise en place” (MEEZ ahn plahs). This means you should have all your ingredients measured, cut, peeled, sliced, grated, etc. before you start cooking. Pans are prepared. Mixing bowls, tools, and equipment are set out.

TIA students then worked together to prepare and cook three healthy recipes, which they then enjoyed for lunch:

  1. Wonton Dumplings with Orange Sauce
  2. Vegan Fried Rice
  3. Orange Salad
In preparation for these cooking classes, all TIA staff and students studied, tested, and earned their full Food Handlers Certification Cards.
