5 Reasons Why You Should Take Your Kids To Cooking Class
I think a lot of little girls start to learn how to cook by making their first pancake with mom in the kitchen you are standing on a stool and when the pancakes are ready she helps you flip it over. My first cooking experience was with my grandmother as I helped her mix the ingredients together to bake a cake. I have two kids and I haven’t quite given them the cooking with mom experience for I am a little afraid of the knives and fire from the stove also as I cook in a rush its not something I take my time to do.
I remember being in the kitchen and my son saying mom I want to be a chef. I’m saying to myself how can I get him to start cooking? I searched online for cooking classes and came across Cooking With Kids NY. I had the pleasure of going to the Cooking With Kids NY at the Diamond Cut Fitness Gym in the Bronx.
About Cooking For Kids NY
The founder Sharon loves to introduce new foods to children. Cooking With Kids was created from a love of cooking, a love of teaching children and a love of expanding the minds and palates of others!
I figured taking my son and daughter to a cooking class they would be able to experience what its like to cook their own dish.
Here are my 5 reasons to take your child to a cooking class:
1.) Try New Things: I am all about experiencing new things with your kids the Founder Sharon uses exotic dishes the one they was Thai.
2.) Learn From Their Peers: What I absolutely love is that she let the older kids help the younger kids and Tovelle even made friends when it was over.
3.) Try What You Cook: My daughter doesn’t drink milk but once she saw everyone making chai tea she tried and liked it.
4.) Independence: As I said earlier its hard to cook with your kids because you are focusing on their safety but all knives were made for children even the onion chopper was a cute roller and my son was able to roll the skin off of the garlic.
5.) Boosts self-esteem: Knowing that they have accomplished something on their own makes them take pride in themselves my son ate his own food saying “I made this”.
