These four lessons will give students the opportunity to learn and explore about the Maillard Reaction and Caramelization. They will have the opportunity to discover about color, taste, texture, flavor descriptions and what it takes to make a great French Onion soup. The students will go through the process of studying about the different concepts, doing hands on labs about the processes, presenting about what they have learned, culminating in making the soup and comparing it to their fellow groups.

This project is brought to you by Shaleah Nelson with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by Team Lead Mina Greas.
