Fighting Poverty with Passion
We’ve been cooking up a storm at Kids Culinary Camp. Check out the blog for updates on the daily activities, Sofabkidsculinarycamp2012.wordpress.com, or read on for some highlights!
Most recipes start with chopping!
Making corn fritters
Look how onions change when you sauté them, and notice the smell!
everyone talking about a recipe that’s important to them and their family
We all take turns adding a different ingredient, then we stir like crazy!
Making butter by shaking a bottle of heavy whipping cream. It’s more fun if you dance while you do it!
Squeezing oranges to make orange juice with the New Orleans Fruit Tree Project
Learning about the origins of traditional New Orleans dishes
Everyone drew their favorite meal from the week and described how it tasted using deccriptive words such as spicy, savory, tangy!
Writing the recipes in our cookbooks so we can make it again at home
We end each day by setting the table and sharing a meal together. It always tastes better because we worked so hard to prepare it and we leave camp full of good food and good conversation!
