My In-Depth this year is baking. I chose to do baking this year because I have a passion for food, and I want to sharpen my baking skills as in the past I have mostly focused on other disciplines of cooking. My project will open up new areas of cooking for me and help expand my culinary palate. Baking will also allow me to express myself in the form of food, one of my favourite things in life.

The mentor I hope to acquire is Mrs. Priestly. Mrs. Priestly is the foods teacher at Gleneagle and is very experienced in cooking in general. I will also be taking Foods and Nutrition 11 with Mrs. Priestly over the course of In-Depth, which will make it easier to arrange meetings and have conversations with her.
