Virtual Classroom Resources

In an effort to continually provide our Iowa ProStart Educators with Virtual Resources to use with both in-person and online students, we are happy to share chef demo videos, courtesy of the Iowa Culinary Institute at Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny. These videos range from Soup to Cornish Game Hen and everything in between. Looking for more resources or have resources to share with others educators? Contact May Schaben at
