The theme was all about eggs and learning about the art and science of cooking methodology. Chef Kadko explained to our young enthusiastic students basic methods of cooking eggs. Like boiled, half-boiled, and poached.
Then we learned about a special dish, a one pot meal a family can make for a brunch or that can be made in a college dorm room as breakfast.
This is a dish named "Shakshuka" of Middle Eastern origin. It was one of the kids favorite, it tasted as good as it looks, and it was quite easy to make once Chef showed them how to make the base of the shakshuka and how to poach the egg on it.
They also learned how to make frittata with seasonal vegetables, like squash and zucchini, spring onions, green onions, etc. topped with your favorite cheese. Another one pot meal kids can make, great for a bunch, dorm cooking, and family meals..
Finally the kids learned how to make the dessert part, where the kids learned how to make a chocolate souffle from scratch, using the finest chocolate.
At the end of the class, everyone enjoyed the dishes they made and their knowledge of how to use eggs was definitely enhanced for the participants.
