By the end of the day, they had learned some of the answers already--by doing! The campers learned all about how to measure dry and liquid ingredients and a bit about how we taste, and then did a Hide 'n Seek activity that showed them what was available at their station. Campers formed groups of three and settled in to their kitchen for the week.
Campers watched Minestrone Soup be made in 25 minutes flat--after the mise en place was assembled, of course-- and then all the odd numbered units went back to make their own soups. Campers in even numbered units made big green salads filled with veggies of their choice and tossed in a homemade vinaigrette.
The reward came when they all sat down at beautifully set tables (thanks Peter!) to share the fruits--and vegetables--of their labors! There are a lot of budding chefs in these kitchens in 007 Henderson, and it's exciting to watch them use their own creativity and knowledge to create some beautiful dishes. We're already looking forward to tomorrow... we have some tasty recipes to explore!
