Trigg County students attend Faria P’Pool’s Family and Consumer Science class to learn the skills needed to manage a household and learn how to cook nourishing meals and tasty treats for themselves.

“All of these kids are like my own,” said P’Pool. “We have a great time in class.”

Proving that some of the best lessons are learned through hands on training, Senior Keyona Bingham said that so far, a lesson on cooking chicken strips had been her favorite. “We’ve written a portfolio piece, and cooked chicken, potatoes and cheesecake in the three labs we’ve had.”

Bingham added that before attending P’Pool’s class, she had little experience in cooking. “I like to cook some, and want to learn how.”

Kegan Davis agreed that the fried chicken lesson was a hit. “Our mouths dropped because the chicken was so good.”

Davis added that he learned a lot about cooking in P’Pool’s class. “We’ve talked about using the right measuring cups, and I learned the difference between sifted and non-sifted flour. I didn’t know what a sifter was before class.”
