Holiday cooking classes for Kids
July 5, 2012 in Uncategorized
When I asked my parents, where we’d be spending the summer holiday, my dad would always reply “we’re going to Romania.” I got caught the 1st time but soon realised that ‘Romania’ was code for NO-WHERE (remain here). All I ever wanted was to get on a plane, I didn’t care where it was going just as long as it was faraway and over the ocean but sadly it looks like the only place I’ll be going this July holiday is Romania! The good news was that I wasn’t the only person staying put these holidays I knew there would be loads of kids going to Romania so I decided run some cooking classes to alleviate holiday boredom with an Around the World theme.
Now no kiddies class would be complete without chocolate so we just had to go to Switzerland and make our own Chocolate truffles then a quick stop off in the U.S of A for cookie dough pizza with chocolate and more chocolate.
Thankfully by the time we hit Italy they were sold out of chocolate so we made a spaghetti dish with a difference and they loved it.
This is a great recipe for kids because not only does it appeal to the younger generation but encourages the use of their fine motor skills.
Viennas or sausage of your choice
Bottle of Italian tomato pasta sauce
- Cut your Vienna sausage into 4 equal pieces.
- Gently thread a piece of uncooked spaghetti through the middle of your Vienna from 1 end to the other. Do this a few times…about 5x
- Bring a large pot of water to the boil…add your funky spaghetti and cook until the spaghetti is just soft. While the spaghetti is cooking heat your Italian tomato pasta sauce
- Drain the water once the spaghetti is cooked and the warm pasta sauce.
- Pour over the spaghettie and sprinkle with cheddar or Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
