OCTOBER 2019: A KITCHEN TOOLS PHD CLASS!
YANKEE DOODLE RAINBOW MACARONI SALAD + CHARRED GREEN ONION HONEY DRESSING +
FABULOUS FROSTED ORANGE JULIUS
We’ve packed a lot for our kid chefs to learn into this week’s recipe! They’ll be using fruits and vegetables to create natural food dyes, continuing to hone kitchen skills like mincing, chopping, slicing, snipping, whisking, blending, and learning what it was like to be a kid in Colonial America. You may share with your children that cooking was definitely a chore for kids back then. It’s not that kids didn’t have fun. They did, and they invented games and created toys with the tools they had rather than going to the store to buy a toy. Modern conveniences we use today (like blenders and electric stoves) didn’t exist. The first electric range was put together in 1892. Before that, how did people cook their food? Ask your children what they think. Dried pasta was another invention in the name of convenience and preservation, and before machinery was invented to help speed the process, pasta used to be dried in the sun! Kids helped their families make the pasta from scratch before that, which took a lot longer than opening a box of the dried stuff and dumping it into a pot of boiling water! HAVE FUN with this whimsical and interactive recipe!
