One of the most important things for you and your children to do is taste all the ingredients.
In all of Spoons Across America’s programs, we have children taste each ingredient that is used in the recipe. We do this to help children understand the different tastes, feel, and flavors of foods.
In this video, we provide suggestions on how to set up a tasting plate, how to lead your children through a tasting, and how to describe each ingredient.
Using a knife is an essential skill when following along with a recipe and cooking in your kitchen.
In this video, Lily shows you the proper way to hold a chef’s knife or child-safe knife, how to use a knife to chop ingredients, and basic knife cuts.
Recipes are a key part of cooking, as they let you know to prepare the dish and what ingredients you will need.
