I don't know if there are culinary programs country-wide, however my highschool in Ontario had a cooking and nutrition class. It was nowhere near like this one in Edmonton, we didn't have fish, or grow our own food, nor did we cook for the whole school. (we didn't have a cafeteria at the school, you brought your own lunch or went elsewhere for it). We learned about nutrition, and how to cook and bake different foods and meals. Then we in the class got to eat it. The class was an elective, so you didn't have to take it, and most of the ones who did were girls. Also most of the students who went to my hs grew up on farms, so they already had the knowledge of where there food came from.


Thanks for weighing in on this. The idea seems pretty simple: having some idea what to do with food. And you're right: kids who grow up on farms have a much better idea. If I had that option in high school, I would have taken it. And I would have been one of the few guys in the class.

My typical breakfast

    There is no right way to finding the balance of food, just your way. My typical breakfast is whole wheat spaghetti with homemade sauce, sautéed mushrooms, and a naturally low-fat Italian cheese sprinkled on top. Works for me.
