The Maine Department of Education is introducing a culinary classroom that has the ability to stream, record and host cooking classes for school foodservice staff throughout the state, the department said. 

Resident chefs from the child nutrition program will instruct local school nutrition teams on topics such as knife skills and maintenance, measuring techniques, using USDA foods effectively and vegan options.

 The space accommodates 30 cooks at a time and is outfitted with equipment found in school kitchens such as commercial ovens and cook tops.
