The same dish can look very different based on who is cooking it. A beginning home cook’s version of scrambled eggs might be very different from a professional chef’s. In this lesson, you’ll examine how a dish can be prepared differently through the use of different ingredients, techniques, and tools. You’ll then plan some goals and map out what success looks like for you.

Teaching Notes: 
  • In a virtual classroom setting, this lesson could be set up as in a jigsaw format. Divide students into groups of five, and have each student choose a video to watch. Students can come back together to summarize their videos and discuss them in small groups.
  • Some lesson plans are formatted as a fillable PDF so that students can answer the questions and return the document as if it were a worksheet. We recommend testing this functionality with your technology as it varies by device and operating system. If it does not work for you, consider using a google form or having students answer the questions in a new document and submitting their answers to you that way.
  • If students are completing this lesson as part of the kitchen curriculum Cooking with Curiosity: Challenging Perfection with Reflection this lesson is 1.3: The third lesson of Unit 1.
