This Year in The Kids' Kitchen

We have been busy learning about measuring, nutrition, and where food comes from while cooking delicious foods in The Kids' Kitchen!  We have learned about many new cooking techniques in each of our cooking sessions such as kneading, making pasta, roasting, grilling, and boiling.

In session one, some of our favorite recipes were sourdough bread bowls and fresh soft pretzels.

In session two, we loved learning how to work the pasta machine and then comparing our fresh pasta to store bought pasta.

In session three, we roasted pork and made a warm plum sauce to go with it.  We even roasted fruit and put it on homemade ice cream.
In session four, we grilled chicken, shrimp, and corn on the cob.  We will finish the session with grilled banana split sundaes.  We also planted vegetables such as peppers, basil, and carrots.

After all this cooking this year, our little chefs will be able to take their cooking journals home with all that they learned to share with their families!
