I am so excited that on Friday I will be teaching my first cooking class to a group of students. 4 middle schoolers and their moms will be joining me to learn the basics of Vietnamese salad rolls and sticky rice pudding. I am beyond thrilled to have this opportunity!
I have made my shopping list, supply list and written the recipes. I am trying to visualize anything that could trip us up. I have a tiny dream that teaching these small classes will become a regular activity for me. It would be wonderful to combine three things I really adore - teaching and cooking AND kids!
What would you look for in a children's cooking class? If you have done it previously, any advice?
If you are in the Portland Area and are interested in cooking classes for young folks (Ages 7-18+) please contact me. I have multiple menu ideas focusing on fresh, healthy ingredients and cooking from scratch. (Hmm, very similar to this blog.) I will happily tailor a menu to fit kids tastes and interests.
Wish me Luck! :)
Edited to add: The class was a blast! I received great feedback from the young women and was even asked to come back! :) I can't wait to do this again.
