Scouts who earn this badge will learn about food safety, nutritional guidelines, meal planning, and methods of food preparation, and will review the variety of culinary (or cooking) careers available. ”
The Cooking merit badge was one of the original 57 merit badges issued by the Boy Scouts of America in 1911.
