Cooking techniques and ingredients vary widely across the world from grilling food over an open fire to using electricity and baking in various types of ovens, reflecting unique environmental, economic, and cultural traditions and trends. The ways or types of cooking also depend on the skill and type of training an individual chef possesses.
Cooking food follows a pattern which commences with the purchasing and selection of materials, their handling, processing and the ultimate presentation of dishes. There are many methods of cooking, most of which have been known since time immemorial. These include baking, roasting, frying, grilling, barbecuing, smoking, boiling, steaming and braising. A more recent innovation is microwaving.
At WBS, it is our endeavor to make students learn all life skills and hence, we have a Cookery Club as part of our extra-curricular activities. The WBS Cookery Club is in session once a week and the members — our little chefs —are baptized into the world of cooking as we teach them the basic culinary etiquettes. They are familiarized with various culinary tools and appliances as also the distinct styles of cooking.
