cookingSTA Kids in the Kitchen

With another fall comes another session of Kids in the Kitchen. I was having a conversation with one of my food friends while putting together this year’s plan; the outcome of that conversation (and some other things) led to this session’s schedule:

  • Week 1 (Wednesday, Nov. 6) – fruits & grains
  • Week 2 (Wednesday, Nov. 13) – veggies & pasta
  • Week 3 (Wednesday, Nov. 20) – stocks & sauces

I realize this is a departure from the classic “What’s for Dinner” program of years past but it’s time to switch it up a bit, master some basics, and then turn them over to Chrissy Teigan or YouTube.


Knife skills will be taught every session so students can feel comfortable with a variety of knives and techniques. Each session will also cover menu descriptions; how ingredients look/are grown; tastes and textures of raw and cooked ingredients; measurements and substitutions; and discussion and examples of how to use ingredients in “everyday cooking.” They’ll be taught specific recipes, but will also learn how to embrace the true art of cooking!

Registration Details:

  • Sessions will be held Wednesdays 11/6, 11/13 and 11/20
  • 3:15 – 4:45 pm
  • $100 per student, payable to Vicki Higuera

Class taught by Vicki Higuera – STA Parishioner.

If there is interest we can run a second session with new techniques and recipes in January.
