Join us for our new kid’s series, “Kids Teach Kids to Cook.” Each month a child volunteers to teach their friends and peers how to make a favorite recipe or dish. January features 4th grader Cara F., who loves steak and mashed potatoes. She will teach the class her favorite way of enjoying these when eating at home with her mom, Elizabeth.
In this month’s Fun Foods from Around the World class, we will be returning to France to visit the sun-kissed southern region. In celebration of this beautiful area, we will learn to make sweet crepes served with jam and Vermont crème fraiche, honoring the Vermont Harvest of the Month: Dairy.
We will meet at the Brattleboro Museum and Arts Center for an up-close look at the current art exhibit followed by a hands-on creative activity at the museum. Afterward, the class will walk up to the BFC Kitchen to make something delicious honoring the holiday season.
Instructors: Lizi Rosenberg (BFC) and Linda Whelihan (BMAC Educator)
When your children enter our cooking classroom, they will be transported to Germany where we will assemble traditional German Gingerbread Houses featuring spiced cookies, sweet icing, sugar, and assorted decorations. Kids can design their own to take home and enjoy.

Join us for a new class series for kids where we will offer a different child each month the opportunity to teach their friends and peers how to make a favorite recipe. December spotlights Branden Howe (Academy 4th grader who came up with the idea of the class), who will teach how to make Apple Pie with Northern Spy and Snow Sweet Apples. Branden’s recipe calls for a side of homemade vanilla ice cream.
For some of us, fall brings sports events worth watching, along with harvests and leaves. I too enjoy a few hours spent watching amazing athletes banding together in pursuit of championships. That’s why I happened to see a TV commercial for a very large national chain touting its support of nutrition in the school system, through the employ of chefs and the education of providers in the benefits of good, healthy eating for our youth.
We will make delicious fillings for our hand pies with all the colorful berries and fruits which are available right now. Children will make a hand pie and some dough to take home.
