Cooking with Millennials

Thursday, November 14, 2013

First, lets talk about what a millennial is - I believe I just barely qualify which is hilarious since I'm almost 28 again (x2). This class I have the privilege to teach includes legitimate millennials born in 90's and inching towards the legal drinking age.

This amazing group of students are in this class to learn life skills - thru the culinary arts. Teamwork is weaved into how to execute a complex recipe. Sticking through the boring task of waiting for a pot to boil, and having the patience to let the dough rise.

The first class was mostly knife skills and a review of the recipes for class two. However, the students quickly identified the ingredients for guacamole, while many of them had never had it. Thinking back would could have also made salsa.

Last nights class was 4 intensive hours making a few classic recipes and sharing a meal together. Well two meals since our salads were completed long before our soups. Don't judge we hadn't had dinner, and our cupcake snack could only keep us going for so long.

A team of 17-21 year olds with little to know experience in the kitchen boiling water made these recipes. And, so can you.
