Cooking with Children, Intro

I love coaching kids as they learn to cook.  This week, “teach children to cook” gets added to the top of what already feels like my crammed to-do list.  But when I’m with the kids, I don’t question why I agreed to add it; teaching kids to cook is a worthwhile joy.

My friend, S., a wonderful cook and extraordinary mommy, asked for input on making cooking sessions with her daughter a success.   My #1 piece of advice to anyone would be this: realize the importance of what you’re doing.  When you teach a child to cook, you give him one of the simplest and most universal pleasures in the world.  You also equip him to save money, adjust food to dietary requirements, and bless others.  Feel profoundly the necessity and joy of nurturing a budding cook, and remind yourself of it often.
