Kids learning to cook
Well, the class has finished and the kitchen is restored, however, we had some utterly gifted teenagers in today. Five kids and five perfect roux sauces, made from scratch with not a whisk in sight. I have seen should good roux sauces from accomplished chefs, perfectly silken and smooth.
They learn not to make a roux sauce to add to a fish pie. This is one of the first things they learn, they are then shown how to turn this into a bechamel sauce or a cheese sauce for macaroni or cauliflower cheese. Today they were so pleased with their sauce mix and pie filling that they practically licked the pan clean.
They had a fantastic day, and all really motivated to continue their culinary endeavours. They took loads of food home to share with their families over the next few days. Most of all they all have a tremendous sense of achievement.
I think the parents want to come and learn as of now!
