Culinary Classic

food

Today’s song is one that you could use to welcome a new group of students to a culinary arts of food preparation course.  The title of the song, Food, Glorious Food! pretty much sums up the content of the song.  The song comes from the classic Broadway musical Oliver! and features a group of orphan boys whose meager diet makes them dream of all the foods they never get to enjoy.

The song introduces several interesting culinary terms.  You might discuss the following with your students.

gruel

bill of fare

custard

saveloys (a highly seasoned, dry sausage)

diet

roast

stew

Gotta feel sorry for the poor little orphans in this video.

Hope you’re having a good week!
