Not to brag but I was the best cook in cooking class at my school. Probably because I LOVE to cook! (and bake) Here is what I did to get my well earned A:
1. Work hard and put effort into your food/assignments. Don't goof off simply because you get to hold cooking utensils in a school classroom. (Even if it is tempting.)
2. Practice your cooking at home, or wherever/whenever you can. Practice does make perfect! (cooking is one of my hobbies, so this was covered for me)
3. Be creative! Cooking is an art, not a backbreaking chore. Show you know both parts of "culinary" and "art".
4. Being a kissup sometimes but rarely helps. Since I was one of the best students in my class, the teacher naturally liked me and was aware of my cooking skills, so getting a good grade was not too hard. BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT I SLACKED OFF!!
Keeping in A in this class is really the same as almost any class. (Also, actually showing up to class really helps) Just a few reminders to keep in mind.
Well, first and foremost, you should show up in class and pay attention and you will learn how to cook but if I were you, I would make practise will some simple dishes at home like macaroni and cheese then start cooking more difficult foods after you get good at cooking the simpler foods and you should be good enough at cooking in a flash. As for the diseases from food poisoning, I actually think that it is its own digestive disease. Try searching the internet for more info about that, though. Hope I helped.
