•  Basics:  Students will be cooking French dish(es) at home for family and friends.  They will choose a recipe or recipes from either those I have in my room, in cookbooks in my room or one they've chosen.  If they get a recipe from a cookbook:  they must write down the title of the book, name of the recipe and page number on a piece of paper that will be turned in with their critiques and reflection.  If they want to cook from a recipe they've found themselves:  they must bring in a copy of the recipe to me for approval.  If that is not done the student will receive a 0 for the assignment.  The students cook the food and then have people eat-those that eat the food need to write a 5 sentence or more critique of the food.  After they write the critique they must sign it.  The students must have a minimum of 3 written, signed critiques to turn in.  The student will write a reflection of 3 or more paragraphs on the cooking experience-why they chose the recipe, cook the dish(es), if there were problems, what were they, did they enjoy it, did the like the food, will they cook it again,etc. 
    What they need to turn into me:  copies of all recipes or paper with information on the cookbook where they got a recipe or the approved recipe if they found it on their own, the critiques, a picture of the food (they can show me on their phones) and the reflection.  Students may also e-mail me pictures of the finished dishes.
