Welcome to Global Cuisines

Project Description. The project goal is to facilitate a world cultural understanding to Central Piedmont Community College students without the requirement and expenses of traveling abroad. CPCC and its partner institution, Universidad Catolica San Pablo, en Arequipa -Peru, collaborate in offering two sessions of their Global Cuisines course in the spring 2013 semester. Sessions are to be facilitated through a synchronous tool via a shared virtual classroom with students and faculty from both countries.

GL -Virtual Outcomes. The outcomes for the Global Learning Virtual are:

  • To facilitate collaboration with students from other countries,
  • participate in dialogues about the same subject from different cultural perspectives,
  • open student’s understanding to different global realities,
  • support the CPCC CORE4 competencies; Critical Thinking, Communication, Technology, and Personal Growth.

CPCC Baking II -CUL 260. This course is designed to further students’ knowledge in ingredients, weights and measures, baking terminology and formula calculation. Topics include classical desserts, frozen desserts, cake and torte production, decorating and icings/glazes, dessert plating and presentation. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate pastry preparation, plating, and dessert buffet production skills. This course is a continuation of CUL 160.
