    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is the type of course where you learn a lot but also have so much fun doing it. It wasn't quite what I expected when I first signed up. It was even better than I expected. As a cooking class, I thought we would be able to slack off and get a good grade with little to no work. The course is fairly easy, but does require quite a bit of work.

    Course highlights:

    The first obvious highlight of this course were the cooking days. It was always such a nice break to get out of the classroom and into the kitchen to try something new. Professor Martelly and Chef J are both so funny as well. Professor Martelly moved to the United States as a child but she has amazing stories about her home culture that really expanded my understanding of the course. There was one big project that we had to do during the semester and I really enjoyed it. Everyone had to do a presentation on a specific country and bring a sample of food from the country.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of the cooking days and always try to get a spot in the kitchen. On cooking days, I always tried to be extra polite and let everyone have their turn before me, but I ended up missing out on a lot because of it. I should have volunteered to chop vegetables more often and gotten more hands-on experience instead of just watching the cooking. Also, do the reading. There are quizzes every day that are based off of the reading and it's important to know the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it was an eye-opening to learn about all the different cultures of food. This course was so fun, most of the time it didn't feel like a class because the course material was so interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning about many different cultures, making yummy food from all over the world, and learning about all the interesting facts have to do with food.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students considering this course would be: DO NOT miss class! there is so much information that is said in the lectures and part of your grade is participation so be there. Also, please participate in group projects and have fun!
