Culinary Cottage – Building Confidence Through Cooking
Most have never learned basic cooking skills. The model for these classes was created by a volunteer who assists with Puget Consumers Coop’s cooking classes. Be a lead or assist anther lead cook. You’ll have an abundance of ‘tried and true’ simple recipes available to you. Or you are, of course, welcome to do your own favorite recipes. All needed equipment and ingredients will be provided. You can cook with the kids once a month or once a week – what ever works in your schedule. Volunteers currently cook from 3-4:30pm or 6-7:30pm Mondays or Wednesdays in the cottages (living quarters for 12 – 17 youth).
Here’s what the staff from one cottage said:
So yesterday, the kids came out excited because it was “Cooking with Lauren” Wednesday…..smiles disappeared when I had to remind them it was every other Wednesday. Clearly, the kids are enjoying the sessions and enjoying the help from you and the other volunteers! …….staff are too!
