Kitchen Capers

"Mom, Dad- What's for dinner?"  

Parents that get this question a lot may want to turn around and ask their children sometimes... Wouldn't it be nice if they could cook?  Introducing Kitchen Capers, an Arts Council original program that teaches children ages 9-14 how to prepare and cook healthy recipes! Although we can't guarantee that your kid will cook for you, we will provide them with the skills to prepare a meal (and clean up afterward)! Each class will focus on food for a different holiday or theme, and your child will come home with shopping lists, recipes and cooking techniques with an emphasis on safety, prep, and cleanup.

The class is taught by mother-daughter pair Susan and Chandler Holland whose chemistry in the kitchen inspired the idea for the class in hopes that more parents and kids will cook together!

The first class is on May 2nd, and the theme is a Mother’s Day Brunch menu to include a mini frittata, creamsicle smoothie, and seasonal berries with creme anglaise.  To register you can visit www.ArtsAlamance.com or call 336.226.4495.  Space is limited, so don't wait!

In the meantime, you can start your child's culinary ed (or maybe just answer the question, "what's for dinner") with the easy recipes from Betty Crocker below!
