In the group of photographs circulating on the Internet, a dozen students surrounded their cooking teachers with aprons and looked at the teacher carefully to cut tofu. They also managed to cook dishes under the guidance of the teacher, and finally shared foods with each other. This is not the classroom in a cooking school, but the public course at Southwest Jiaotong University. Many netizens said after reading: This course is welfare for foodie!
It is understood that the school has set up a food education course called "Eat and Say". Students can earn credits by cooking the hot pot. “Not only hotpot, Mapo tofu, stewed pork, sweet and sour pork ribs, but also all dishes can be credited.” The teacher said that the public course is very popular at present. Although the course selection has stopped, there are still many students who come to ask if they can join.
It is understood that this course has a total of 2 credits, 32 credit hours and 4 credit hours for each time. In 8 weeks, the students not only learned the theoretical knowledge of Sichuan cuisine, but also learned to cook classic recipes such as Mapo tofu, Shuizhu pork, Yuxiang loaf cake and twice-cooked pork under the guidance of the teacher.
How to evaluate students' work? For this topic, Teacher Yu introduced that the students’ course performance consists of three parts, consist of 20% usual performance, 40% experience gained, and 40% food display.
He Xinyuan, who comes from the sophomore material science and engineering major. In last week, he was successfully remembered by his classmates after trying three times to do Mapo tofu. This time, he smiled embarrassedly. “I had fried bean paste for the first time last week. The second time the water was down, and the third time I barely passed.”
This time in order not to repeat the failure, when the teacher was making pickled fish, he carefully wrote down every detail. After the "Mapo Tofu" incident, he expressed the hope that he could truly learn the practice of Mapo Tofu, and later cook the dishes to his mother and girlfriend.
In addition to this course, Southwest Jiaotong University has already experimented with many special courses. It is understood that Southwest Jiaotong University opened a course called “Hand Learning” last year. Students can not only use handicrafts for used items, but also experience woodworking and excitement printing.
