I have an after school class where we teach the students how to cook. We do a variety of foods since we have a mix of cultures in our school. These range from cajun cuisine, traditional Mexican foods such as carne asada, and Asian foods like chicken fried rice. The students truly love doing this, since it is an elective after school class, and they want to be there. The ingredients in our fundraiser will help the students learn how to cook many things from just a few ingredients. By having these ingredients, I can show the kids that you don’t need expensive ingredients to make expensive tasting food. Cooking and eating together makes memories. By creating positive memories and building essential life skills with my kids, I hope to leave a lasting impression on them. My students not only begin to form bonds with me, but with each other, and ignite a passion for culinary arts.
