WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU THROW A CHICKEN IN A VOLCANO? “BAK-LAVA!” Today we’re making a cake inspired by one of the world’s most delicious desserts, and a true gift to the sweet culinary world: Baklava. It’s probably a new word and a new dessert for many kid chefs; the joke above might help them remember it!
We’re going to explore Greece, learn about the incredibleness of honey, and marvel at how taste and smell go together with our ingredients today by performing some simple experiments that will get kid chefs thinking of ways they can bring out the flavors of ingredients in our online classes.
Although this cake is not the same as baklava, it’s very delicious, We know kids will love it and that they’ll remember it when they have a chance to try the real thing! “YIA MAS!” (Yee-AH moss) or CHEERS in Greek!
Each Sweet MUG-tastic Recipe include kids prepare a snack of raw veggies and hummus, sour cream, guacamole, nut butter, and/or another dip of their choice at the beginning of class. ALL veggies are good for the brain! The purpose is to reinforce and encourage kids to eat veggies and have them learn a little about what each vegetable does for the body!
