Culinary Arts 1


In this new course, students will gain culinary skills to cut, prepare, sautee, roast, and bake food items, and will serve their beautiful and creative meals to others. Students will prepare and serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert foods, including pasta, salads, soups, meat, poultry, seafood, vegetables, grains, cookies, and breads. They will cultivate healthy eating practices while exploring familiar and global dishes and diverse culinary cultures. When students complete this course, they will be both practically and spiritually prepared to share God’s love through hospitality, cooking, and coming to the table with others.


Calling all foodies! Do you love the smell of fresh-baked bread? Do you want to know the secret to making the perfect chocolate chip cookie? Have you ever wanted to create your own soup from scratch, topped with herbs that you grew in your own garden? Or maybe your goals are even bigger — have you ever thought about opening a soup kitchen to serve the needy in your community? Whether you’re brand new to the kitchen and wanting to learn some basics, or you’ve already cooked and baked at home, this course will challenge you and take your skills to the next level. We will be looking at global food cultures and examining our own beliefs about diet while uncovering God’s best for our bodies, our tables, and our communities. This brand new course is unlike any culinary arts course offered in other schools. You’ll make over twenty recipes and three full meals to serve your friends, family, or others in your community. This course is an extremely valuable foundation for anyone wanting to make restaurant-quality meals at home or bring the joy of food and spiritual nourishment to others locally or around the world.

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

Student Feedback

“I loved getting to learn all about food and the meanings behind it especially when it came to the Bible. It made me realize there is so much more behind just cooking a meal.”

I loved this course, and I sincerely hope that a culinary arts 2.0 comes to NSA!

I really enjoyed the flip grids and getting to learn about other people’s cooking experiences and aspirations.
