Cooking Class!

I was chosen recently to review Kids Cook Real Food, a cooking class for children starting with raw materials rather than processed foods. I haven’t felt like I did the best at getting my children to help prepare meals, so that’s why I was interested in it. Well, since getting started with this course, I have discovered that my boys know more than I thought they did, but it has been good for the younger ones, especially. The first several lessons have to do with using knives safely. The beginner class doesn’t use sharp knives, so even 2-3-year-olds can do this. Little Miss is delighted that she gets to help cut up food, and several times since we started the course she and Mr. Imagination have spent an hour at a time cutting things up for me. Today, they have been dicing potatoes and eggs for potato salad, and now they are dicing some mushrooms for tonight. They have great fun and it makes them feel good to be doing real work! I bought a crinkle cutter just for this project; Little Miss loves it. See how focused they are on their job? I’ve been surprised by how well they can cut things up, and I appreciate the safety tips we have gotten from the videos we’ve been watching. (This post isn’t my review; I may or may not do a review here. I just wanted to show Grandma what the little people are doing today.)
