Make Your Own Lunch!

Missed our Make Your Own Lunch cooking class in Winter 2015?  Follow along with our next class!  Sign up for weekly email Postcards From Cooking Class and you'll get all the recipes and information you need to follow our cooking classes in your own home.

Kids can take charge of their own lunchtime and have fun doing it, with easy and delicious recipes and information to help them make smart choices.

In Week 1 we learned how to put together a great-tasting lunch that has everything you need to fill your tummy, help you think smart, feel good and act nicely all afternoon at school.  We tried two delicious kinds of turkey sandwiches, with seconds ...and thirds!

In Week 2 we learned how to make "Miracle" Tuna!  Made with mayonnaise and a little Dijon mustard (so many good things come from France!), it's simple and tastes great with whole wheat crackers.

In Week 3, we made traditional French Dijon Vinaigrette!  We learned about the kitchen chemistry behind emulsion, and how to make salad dressing that doesn't separate.  Finally, we created our own salads at a French-inspired salad buffet, all to the tune of some great French music.

Week 6 - Applesauce, Aprons and Recipe Books!

This week, we made three different kinds of pinwheels, inspired by the flavors of France, Mexico and the Middle East. When we were finished, we had a pinwheel buffet to share our food with each other.  Click for Pinwheel recipes and details...

Congratulations to our new Official Lunch Experts!  In our final week of class, we enjoyed homemade applesauce and made Make Your Own Lunch recipe books to take home.  Each small chef also received a personalized apron and a certificate.  Click for Homemade Applesauce recipe and details from class...
