Little ones gathered as Melissa Clark led an engaging guacamole making class – read Melissa’s mention in her article here!. At their stations, each child had all the ingredients and tools to make this classic dip come to life. From learning how to cut an avocado to chopping cilantro, each participant left feeling inspired. The children had fun learning about ingredients and felt empowered to make decisions about what ingredients to add or omit. Once they were done, the children had a blast pairing their guac with chips and sharing with their new friends!
Pastry Chef Natasha Pickowicz supported our Young Hearts and taught them new skills as they assembled glazed fruit tarts. Our mini pastry chefs learned how to use a pastry brush to spread marmalade and a microplane to add lemon zest to their desserts. Natasha supported the children as they explored new ingredients, flavors, and colors. The children walked away with gorgeous fruit tarts filled with kiwi, apple, berries, mint, lemon, marmalade, and edible flowers. See Natasha’s summary of the tart-making here.
