Kids in the Kitchen II

Several years ago I taught a cooking class for a little girl's birthday party. She was turning 7 and most of the kids at the party were between 5-9. Her mother is a friend of mine from a previous job. She selected the menu and I brought the food and equipment. It was a blast. I loved watching the excitement on their faces as they made their food and enjoyed every bite.
Kids in the Kitchen I

Shortly after that, I left my 20 year public health career to teach more cooking classes. I recently got connected with a home school program after one of the moms contacted me to teach classes for her kids.

This was our first menu.

Curried Cauliflower and Green bean salad with Lemon yogurt

Roasting vegetables enhances the flavors by concentrating their natural sugars. You will be amazed. If you don't like cauliflower try this recipe to possibly change your mind.

You'll love it so much you'll want more so I adjusted the recipe to make extra vegetables to use as a side later in the week. Simply remove half of the vegetables and refrigerate before adding the curry. You can later add any seasoning you want to them. I tried a squeeze of lemon juice and a little pepper and they were great.

Pancetta and Herb Risotto

Risotto is made with Arborio rice, a very traditional Italian dish. There have been many variations created with added ingredients such as shrimp, vegetables and cheese but the basic recipe is standard. The dish begins by sautéing onions and rice, stirring in white wine and adding hot broth until the rice is creamy and tender.

To serve this as a vegetarian dish, omit the pancetta and replace the chicken stock with tomato juice.

Wine Pairing: A French or Spanish Rose wine
