Extra Crispy KFC
Welcome to KFC! Where kids and adults can learn together and more importantly have fun learning about sustainability, food and cooking not necessarily in that order. We want everyone to be able to play with their food and it's especially important that kids learn early on about the origins of food and how important it is for a functioning society to focus on food, nutrition and family togetherness. The extra crispy part is about providing that little extra surprise that gets you to remember and think about what you've just done not just in cooking but in just about everything you do. It's the feeling you get when you bite into something and it brings back a memory of somewhere back in time. Let's start building this food memory bank!
We will be posting some recipes and dishes here that are both kid friendly to cook and to eat! I think you'll be surprised at just how much kids can do if you give them just a little inspiration.
Join us for our Kid Friendly Cooking Classes
We're going to have our first cooking class & Kids Bistro event on Sunday, May 20th. If you live in the greater San Diego Area you're invited to enroll. Space is limited as we want everyone to have the opportunity have a good hand's on experience. For those of you have attended a class you'll be able to download the recipes
Who taught you how to cook?
Learning has traditionally been passed on from generation to generation. We can all can remember a special dish that our mother or father cooked for us. We remember it because either it was especially good or sometimes it was especially bad, either way the memory of how much it meant to us is etched into our memory banks. For me it was my mother's oven fried chicken and my father's secret sirloin steak marinate (it was coke). Food memories are all about love and how much people care for one another. Today we've lost some of the reverence for home cooked meals. Author Michael Pollan said that today we spend a paltry 27 minutes a day preparing food for our loved ones (even if your loved is yourself) which is a far cry from the 60 minutes a day our parents spent cooking for us. Home cooked meals are all about love and people after all. We all know of at least one couple who got married because their significant other wowed them by cooking a romantic dinner, maybe you're one of them.
