Food Lab #2: Cooking MEAT!

We had so much fun in food lab last night!


This class rules. I mean, we wear cute aprons instead of lab coats! :) (Sabrina, does my apron look familiar? :) )


I also love working in kitchens with spatulas, knives, and ovens instead of an actual lab with test tubes and bunsen burners!


So fun :)


Yesterday’s lab was all about MEAT!



We practiced all sorts of different ways to cook meat, comparing and contrasting (read: tasting!) the results of the different methods. In particular, we learned how to make lean cuts of meat still taste delicious — important for RD’s-to-be!


Stay tuned later today for more details on what we learned and for the delicious recipe that my team made! :) Plus, I’ll be posting the winner of my CSN Stores $65 Gift Card Giveaway — you have until 4:30 p.m. EST to enter!

And in the meantime:

    I would LOVE school if I got to do this. :)

    It looks like so much fun. If I could do it over, I probably would do what I am doing know. A domestic engineer. But RD does interest me, nutritional facts about food have come a long, long way. Keep sharing

    i would be SO EXCITED to have a food lab again! i had one for my major in college for 3 semesters and it was face rocking every.single.time!

    Food lab does seem like a lot of fun. Does any of the students have any problems with cooking meat? I just ask because I am assuming there is at least 1-2 people who are vegans or vegetarians

  6. 6

    I wish some of my class were half as fun. Maybe Ill start wearing an apron to class anyways!

    I remember our “Chicken” lab – our unit got stuck with Eggplant Parmesan. Um?! Ha, ripped off.
