I am honored to announce that I have been asked to participate in the upcoming Jr. Chef Kids Culinary Convention!
"On Saturday, September 20, 2008, more than 300 young people ages 10-15 will again come together to share their common interest in cooking at the 2nd Annual Jr. Chef Kids Culinary Convention. The only event of its kind in the nation, the Kids Culinary Convention offers workshops and presentations covering a variety of culinary topics presented in a kid-focused environment. These sessions are designed to:
•Help kids make smart food choices
•Teach them independence and self-sufficiency
•Build their confidence
•Advance their culinary knowledge"
I have been asked to be a guest instructor assisting the children with a lesson on pasta making. I am hoping to inspire the youngs chefs to be into becoming serious foodies and chefs alike.
The event is being judged by 3 people:
1) Jill Novat, Culinary Producer of Food Network
2) Elaine Johnson, Associate Food Editor Sunset Magazine
3) Tina Macuha, channel 31 news
This is going to be a lot of fun and something promoting local kids learning about their food, the source of their food, eating healthy and learning to cook while having fun!
