Food for thought

Chef D’ Esposito, the Culinary Arts instructor of the program, reminds students, “Yes, this looks good and taste great but can we market it? Can we make this into a business?” This course will teach you how.

The DHS Culinary Program is all encompassing. Chef D teaches students the recipes handed down to him from some of the finest chefs in the New York City restaurant scene and across the U.S., sauces and ingredients that are the trick to cooking fine continental cuisine.

In DHS’s state-of-the Art kitchen complex students have a classroom that comes to life with their own hard work and effort. If you are interested in the Culinary Arts Program at Demarest High School, please contact Principal, Mr. Thomas Fitzgibbons or Chef. D’ Esposito at 201-356-3742.

Cosmetology Program

The Demarest High School Administration is pleased to announce that Cosmetology classes have been on-going for the 2008-2009 school years.

Under the direction of Ms. Isabel Diaz, students train to become a licensed cosmetologist including haircutting, coloring, perming, and styling as well as manicuring, pedicuring, and facials. In addition, students learn retail cosmetic sales, salon development and practice those skills in a model salon/lab setting. The classes are available to all students at Demarest High School.

The cosmetology program at DHS is a course of study covering all phases of cosmetology, hair care, and skin care and manicuring. The curriculum is mandated by the New Jersey State Department of Education. The course is designed to prepare the student to pass the New Jersey State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology licensing examination and to help the student to obtain the knowledge and skills needed for an entry level position in the beauty field. Passing the exam is a prerequisite in order to obtain a Cosmetology License. The license is a requirement to operate as a cosmetologist in the state of New Jersey.

The curriculum for students enrolled in a cosmetology course consists of technical instruction and practical operations. Technical instruction means instruction given by demonstration, lecture, classroom participation, or examination. Practical operation means actual performance by the student of a complete service on another person or a mannequin.

Foster, that would be a great idea… even better would be to rotate all the students through the program and have them responsible for providing lunch for their fellow classmates and the faculty. It would give all the kids a valuable skill and teach them how to make healthy meals. It is also very satisfying to cook what we call “family meal” in the business; it gives you a bond with your peers. We could also use a program like this to reduce staff. If the kids were able to cook their own meals, we wouldn’t need as many full-time cafeteria staff…
