Special Chef Cooking Club

Jennifer Randolph – Nampa PREP 


Students in this program have special needs.

They have been selected to participate because they are eager to learn vocational and life skills which may afford them the ability to be independent in the future.

Teaching cooking to students with disabilities is an opportunity to not only increase healthy nutrition, but also put basic academic skills to use in a functional way.

My students want to start the “Your Special Chef” Cooking club because they think cooking will give them the opportunity to work on reading skills, listening skills (e.g., one student can read the recipe and one can complete the steps), sequencing, nutrition, meal planning, math for measuring and adjusting recipes and how to use a variety of kitchen tools.
