Initially, Sam was expecting the Kids in the Kitchen class to be very basic, but he changed his mind when he met the two mentoring instructors. The women were kind and patiently guided the junior chefs through the step-by-step cooking process.
The first menu item was a teenager’s dream—homemade pizza with fresh dough from scratch. Everyone pitched in for that part of the exercise, kneading their own dough. Sam and the other students learned that you cannot always depend on store bought or frozen pizzas for quality. After the pizzas were baked to perfection, the students tasted their creations and understood the instructors’ lesson about freshness and quality.
Much to his surprise, Sam thoroughly enjoyed the class and is looking forward to the next one. He liked gaining hands-on experience prepping his own ingredients. “I am so used to ordering take-out pizza. It felt good to make the pizza from scratch myself. I really appreciated this different approach.”
