Description
Italian cuisine has influenced food culture around the world and is viewed as a form of art by many. Wine, cheese and pasta are important part of Italian meals. The project will introduce students to Italian cuisine as we know it and prepare them to make a classic Italian dinner meal: Chicken Parmesan, salad and Italian dressing.

Lesson 1 - Students first need to learn the importance of knowing measurements and the difference between liquid, dry, and solid ingredients.

Lesson 2 - Italian cuisine has influenced food culture around the world and is viewed as a form of art by many. Wine, cheese and pasta are important part of Italian meals. The lesson will introduce students to Italian cuisine as we know it. Mama Mia! That's a spicy meatball!!

Lesson 3 - What makes Chicken Parmesan such a gooey, juicy, warm, salty plate of Italian delight? Is it the pasta, the Manzano tomatoes to create the sauce, or is it the cheese? Students will learn how to create chicken Parmesan from a scratch-made recipe. The taste...delizioso!

Lesson 4 - The lesson students will be learning today is the importance of a good Italian dressing for a salad, "ala" ltaliana. The Italians believe in using very little vinegar, the 'right' amount of salt (not too much, not too little) and a generous amount of oil. And fresh torn lettuce--a must!

This project is brought to you by Karen Stattler with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by Team Lead Laura Gallardo.
