Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is a required course, but I would recommend it even if it wasn't. HFHM 173 and 176 are pre-requisites to this course. It's a two part course with a lecture and a lab component. The lab portion is done in groups, so even if you lack confidence in your kitchen skills, you'll have classmates to rely on.
In the lab portion, you get to work in groups of at least three people in your own little kitchen. You learn about food preparation techniques and recipes you can use daily. You also get to eat what you and your other classmates make!

Advice for students:
Attend the lectures. The professor provides in-depth information about topics discussed in the book. I think the lectures are way more informative and easier to understand than the textbook. Have fun during the lab, and ask for help if you don't understand something. The professor and the aide are both very helpful.
