It has been years since Portland has been socked in with an awesome snowstorm! I am thrilled to have a chance to play in the snow with my family, but I was very disappointed to cancel this morning’s pizza making class.
Never fear! I am rescheduling the class for February 22nd!
Pizza from Scratch for Young Chefs – This isn’t just any pizza! We will be making the dough, sauce and CHEESE from scratch! We will explore traditional and unique toppings and flavor combinations. Then we will bake up the perfect pizza to enjoy together (and of course, bake up something sweet to finish up our meal!)

I found this list on one of my favorite foodie website, the Kitchn. The author lists everything they think a young person needs to know to be successful in the kitchen. I totally agree! My March 1st class, The Power of Spices, will cover many of these skills!
What do you think kids need to know to become a successful cook?
