I'm Nimai Larson and I'm excited to teach your children about food!
If knowledge is power, than I believe the most powerful tool in a childs tool kit is knowing how to nourish their rapidly growing bodies with nutritious, peaceful, mostly plant-based food. Armed with health and an awareness of where our food comes from and how it affects our bodies, a child has a better chance of growing to be a strong adult who can protect themselves against poor food choices, is confident in the kitchen, and can lead their friends by example.
Kids Cookout! is an opportunity for your children to work hands-on with me in a small group and help them create dishes that are fun to make and healthy for their bodies. It would require one hour of time where the focus would be safe food preparation, continuous honest communication between the children and I, the incorporation of background information about the ingredients used, and most of all, an encouraging environment for the kids to explore their creativity in the kitchen.
I will be providing the necessary equipment and ingredients. All the kids have to do is show up (on time and clean!) with an open mind. Each Saturday morning, I will teach my students to make a sweet treat and something savory. Everyone will leave with a sample of what they've made and a recipe!
Because the age range is 3-12, parents are encouraged to attend if their child is under 6 years old.
