Class Experience

In this 3 day camp, learners will cook 3 pumpkin recipes from start to finish. Students will learn how to work safely with a stovetop, proper knife skills, how to make homemade pasta, and how to use an immersion blender or standup blender.  They will learn different cooking styles and terms such as simmer, saute, boil, and more.
I have been working as a kids enrichment teacher for the last 3 years.  I love teaching children and allowing them to create and think outside the box.  I have a 9-year-old son who is on the Autism Spectrum, so am a very patient and understanding teacher.  I realize all children learn differently and it is imperative to really listen to each child in order for them to feel secure and safe.

2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Kids will learn safety around the stove and how to properly read and understand following a recipe while preparing a delicious meal that is guaranteed to impress. We will work on measurements, cooking terms, and why following directions while cooking is imperative. When stove work is done, if your learner is younger or not experienced in the kitchen, parental guidance may be needed.  We will be doing a shallow fry for the chicken parm.  I will discuss safety measures before we do anything but again if your learner is inexperienced in the kitchen, they may need some assistance.
