About the Event
In our second class of Edible Botany we will take a look at the Brassica family of plants. We will discuss why they are so unappealing to most children, and how we can change that. Often learning more about it, and learning to cook it helps most children want to at least try eating it.
We will go over the health and nutritional benefits of eating these plants and how they help our bodies in so many ways. Plants and food are not just for taste but for nourishment, vitality, and long-term health of a growing body and brain.
I will have several types of plants for us to cook in different recipes. All of them will be vegetarian friendly, but not vegan. We will have cheese with at least 1 of our dishes, and a few may also include gluten. If your child has allergies to any of these foods, this may not be the class to join.
The entire class will be outdoors, so be sure to have your child in close toed shoes, layers, a hat, and a mask they can wear the entire time, except when eating. We will cook and eat our meals together sharing ideas, discussing measurements of ingredients, and figuring out how much to season our food. Allowing children to determine these small but meaningful steps, gives them them control of their food choices and aids in building their self-esteem and will.
All my cooking classes follow Montessori pedagogy and we will use materials, books, maps and stories to support our learning environment. I will provide all materials, food and water. Children are welcome to bring a water bottle if they would like, but not needed.
I also provide an outdoor sink they can wash their hands. However, the restroom is inside.
This is an in-person cooking class for children ages 8-13. I am fully vaccinated and boosted, and my entire family is also fully vaccinated. We hope to keep this a fun and safe environment for the children and use all cautionary measures to ensure their safety at this time.
Location: This will be at my home, and for privacy reasons I do not list it on this site. I will email you once you have RSVP'd. However, we live near SDSU campus.
