Cooking in the City

January 12, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm

Welcome to our First EVER Cooking in the City!

Taste the Food of Vietnam!

Join us in imaginative cooking with REAL tasty food.

Have you tried Vietnamese food? Would you like to?  

Come taste a traditional Vietnamese Salad called, “Goi!” This salad is made of glass noodles and additional toppings.  One of our very own Brain Builder, Mai Ha, will give us a taste of her Vietnamese culture by Cooking a famous dish.  Mai Ha was born and raised in Vietnam and is excited to share her traditions with our guests! Recipes will be included.

 Cooking Activities: 11 am & 2:30 pm 

*This is not a cooking class, we will engage in imaginative play and have an opportunity to enjoy pre-made cooked food,

 Mai will be sharing with us her family’s altar and how they customize the menu based her ancestor’s preferences. 

Purpose: These activities will encourage children to learn about other cultures and cuisines. They will develop fine motor skills, learn about cause and effect, and develop neuro-pathways through discovering new textures.
