3/10 Knife Skills for Kids 8-12 year olds
Children will spend instructional time discussing knife safety and cutting rules, learn how to make simple cuts and prep a recipe. We hope to help families make a commitment to forge ways to cook and eat together on a regular basis. We will also offer tips for parents on how to get kids more engaged in cooking and eating healthy meals. This particular class will be focused on basic cuts and prepping for a recipe to be prepared at home. Families will be expected to shop with kids for their prep list before class and cook with them later that day at home.
*Classes will be taught by Kelly Kozak, co-owner of Bernal Cutlery, nutrition educator, a food justice activist, and mother of three. Having a big passion for food justice, Kelly works where she can to help with community nutrition education and healthy food access. Kelly was a 2009, 2010, and 2011 recipient for the First Five Family Grant where she worked together with a group of five neighborhood families to execute a kindergarten readiness curriculum based on gardening and nutrition. Her favorite quote is Marion Nestle at a lectern, announcing that, "if one wanted to be truly radical, then they should teach a kid to cook".
