When I first started teaching (30 years ago - hows that ajkb!!! and still teaching), it was called Home Science. It evolved some years later to Food Technology (looks more out industrial / commercial settings of food). I upgraded 10 years ago to teach Hospitality to seniors as a vocational course. We all have to wear chef uniforms for practical work for that course and my school is getting a commercial kitchen upgrade next year for the Hospitality classes.
