"The best part of the cooking class today was when I introduced the special ingredient as artichokes, one kid asked very seriously, "What if I don't eat vegetables?" to which I replied...we'll just wait and see if you eat them in the ravioli we will make...  Then after he had gobbled up all of his ravioli at the end of class, I asked him, "So how were those vegetables?"  He bashfully smiled and said, "They were pretty great!" - Chef Ariel, TEXAS
