Ivy Tech’s ‘Chicken 101’ offers new look at old favorite

PERU, Ind. – Interested in exploring that perennial mealtime favorite – chicken? Ivy Tech Community College is offering “Chicken 101” April 1 with instructor Melanie Kiefer, family and consumer sciences teacher at Peru High School. Registrations are being accepted for the noncredit culinary seminar, which will be held in Ivy Tech Kokomo Region’s culinary arts lab in Peru from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

In this class, students will meet ‘the bird’ head on and hands on, learning to deconstruct a chicken and save on the family food bill.

“A whole bird is always less expensive that its parts,” Kiefer said. “We’ll look at how to use every part of the chicken by preparing main dish entrees, chicken gravy and chicken stock for soup. You’ll go home with the chicken that you cut up along with ideas and recipes that will become favorites in your kitchen.”

Fee for the class is $95.  Ivy Tech Peru’s noncredit culinary seminars, limited to 20 students, are held in the culinary arts lab in the Peru Instruction Site at 425 W. Main St.  For information and to register, contact Sarah Fawcett, sfawcett1@ivytech.edu, or call 800-459-0561, ext. 285.
