Cooking Birthday Party with Turnip the Heat Cooking

birthday-party-images-2-1

We are booking our October, November, and December birthday parties now! Our time slots fill up quickly so plan ahead.

Our cooking birthday parties are a great way to kick off a new year! Turnip the Heat offers cooking birthday parties for kiddos ages 6 and older. We like to keep the groups small to make sure everyone can participate and have fun.

We love to plan a menu around the birthdays persons favorite foods (or books!!!).

(We also do grown up celebrations!)

Sharp Stuff

unnamed-15

Anyone who has come to a Turnip the Heat class has seen our bright colored Kai knives. I love these because they are so sharp and have a sheath, which makes transport safer. My favorite is the 8-inch, bright pink chef’s knife. It is large enough to slice through almost anything. It is also very light weight, so I can use it all day.

If you have a young person in your life who is developing a love of cooking, I highly recommend getting them their own knife. Safety wise, a sharper knife is much safer then a dull knife. Having their own knife will encourage them to use it regularly, further developing their skills. This 6-inch blue knife is a great deal and would be perfect for a beginner cook (and they can bring it to their next Turnip the Heat Cooking class!).

I am not someone to recommend products (I am a total minimalist!), but I really believe these are an awesome product (and a total deal for a fabulous knife!).

PS. More knife- skill classes will be coming in August

Dumpling Class

This will focus on the dumpling! Nearly every culture in the world has a version of the dumpling, delicious filling tucked into dough then steamed, boiled or fried! We will be busy stuffing, folding, cooking and dipping! Come hungry!

Menu:
Nepalese Momo dumplings
Empanadas with black beans and cheese
Sweet Moochi Dumplings
I have decided to add a Nepalese Momo dumpling to the menu and donate all profits from the class to Mercy Corp to help victims of the Nepalese Earthquake. My heart hurts for Nepal and I want to give back.
