Kids’ Cooking Classes!!

Hey friends!!

Wow, what amazing week!!! Thanks for inviting me to join you in your kitchens! You’ve given me a better start to 2022 than I ever could have imagined!

There has been such incredible interest in our zoom cooking classes that OF COURSE we will continue! We’ll cook together some weekends (maybe all weekends?? I’m not sure yet!) and some weeknights we can make dinner together. It will still be free, and we’ll still do it on zoom the way we have been, but we can’t keep doing it every day, since most students are back at school now, whether online or in real life. So we’re going to bake together on weekends (some of them? all of them? I’m not sure yet!) and I think we should make dinner together on some weeknights! Rather than relying on social media, you can sign up for a newsletter and I’ll send the recipes and zoom links out ahead of each class – you can join whenever you like! If you’re interested in hearing about upcoming classes (and getting the recipes!) sign up below!

    Thank you so much for doing this! My daughter managed, with a little help, to make both the sticky cinnamon buns and the biscuits and it was all delicious. Already looking forward to tomorrow for butter tarts, yum yum!!
    Your efforts to help the kids is so lovely, we appreciate you in Ontario 🙂

    Hi Julie,
    I seldom miss your Tuesday CBC Eye Opener session with David.
    I’ve tried making hot pastry for Melton Mowbray Pies. I used 5” x 3” spring-form round pie pans with the removable bottoms. I’d be please if you have an tips.
    Here’s my current recipe.
    Hot water pastry
    4 cup flour (1/2 all-purpose flour 1/2 bread flour)
    3/4 cup lard (half lard and butter)
    1/2 salt
    190 ml water
    1 egg whisked for coating pastry
    Combine meat, crumbs, and spices by hand and let sit for 2 h.
    Melt lard in water. Add salt to flour.
    Add lard-water to flour and mix. Do not over-mix.
    Form a ball and knead to 1/2 inch thickness then roll to 3-4 mm thickness. Wrap the dough and refrigerate overnight.
    Cut 1/4 of the dough for the pie lid. Place the pan over the pastry to cut a circle plus 1/2 cm for the lid. Cut a hole in the lid into which the gelatine will be added.
    Use a 6-8” pan (spring-form) and drape the pastry with a rolling pin over the pan.
    Gently form the pastry to the edges of the pan. Try not to have any folds.
    Add the meat mixture loosely into the pastry. Over fill the pastry because the meat will shrink when cooking.
    Thanks so much Julie.

    Thank you so much, we are still feasting on butter tarts and ravioli! You have made trying to work at home with the kids in a snowstorm better than bearable. Many thanks. Do you offer kid’s cooking classes regularly? I would love to sign my daughter up– she is learning so much and loving the community. Thank you for your generosity!

    Thank you so much Julie! We really enjoyed making the dumplings today and they tasted so good. I don’t know how you managed to answer all of the questions but it was so nice to be “interactive” and have our questions answered too. . We will definitely be referring back to the video to make more in the future. We thought they might be good for dinner but they were eaten as soon as they were made! Lol

    A BIG thank you for the kids cooking camp this week – you have been a life saver with the kids off school and freezing temps in Edmonton it has been a great week with activates – the best part is we get to eat our hard work!

    All of your recipes were easy and they were sooooo tasty!

    BIG thank you from the Olsson Family.

    I bake with my kids, but we usually only make cookies or muffins together. I’d made versions of most of the cooking class recipes myself before, but I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I wouldn’t have thought to include my 6- and 8-year old kids in my pie- and cream-puff-making yet. They weren’t able to do it all on their own, but they both succeeded with a bit of assistance. So thank you so much for the encouragement, and for this friendly activity to keep our children busy and happy. We still had A LOT of baking, chocolate, and treats leftover from Christmas, so we only made 1/2- or 1/4-recipes of your classes, but the small batches still all turned out. It was lovely baking in real-time with families across the world. And for free, no less! Thanks again!
