Cooking Projects

Cooking is for everyone! The 4-H cooking series teaches youth about food preparation, food and kitchen safety, food science, meal planning and nutrition.

Each manual builds on the skills learned in the previous level and members complete project activities for each level in two to three years. All project recipes have been tested by University of Illinois Extension nutrition and wellness educators.

Among other topics, youth learn how to use MyPlate, avoid spreading germs while cooking, measure and mix ingredients, test baked goods for doneness, brown meat and set the table for a family meal.
