‘Avocado & Fig’ After School Cooking Club for Kids

Avocado and Fig

Are you looking to enrich your child’s education (and keep him or her entertained too)?

Well, the solution is here!

If you want your kids to learn history and cooking in a fun way, this program is for them!

In our new ‘After School Cooking Club’ Program, your child will learn:

  • To expand their palate the best way: through their own experimenting (guided of course!)
  • Learn about history and culture around the world in quick history lessons
  • Simple hands-on cooking lessons to ‘travel’ to different regions around the world
  • Other lessons include
    • Mini-tutorials in the kitchen, i.e. knife skills, organization, healthy cooking, nutritional foods, independence and more 

Example Lessons:

Mountains of Peru

History lesson- Rise of the Incan Empire

Cooking lesson- Vegetable Quinoa Soup

Trip to Italia

History lesson- The Renaissance

Cooking lesson- Bruschetta 3 Ways

The details:

4 Live cooking sessions per month via Zoom (30-40 minutes each)

This program is designed for students age 6-12 years old.

Your payment for this program would be for 4 classes.

It begins Wednesday, August 19th at 3:30pm (PST) and will meet for the following 3 Wednesdays, Aug. 26th, Sep. 1st, and Sep. 9th.

You will receive the lesson and recipe a couple days before our class so you can gather the ingredients needed for our class.

If your child enjoys it, you can continue the next month.

Why Chef Joanna?

Apart from being a professionally trained chef and culinary teacher, I taught online English classes to Chinese children while I traveled the world for a year. I know, it’s crazy, but it gave me a lot of experience teaching 5-12 year olds and ended up loving it. I learned how to make online learning engaging and fun, and eat around the world too!

I traveled to 10 countries in a year and thought of this idea while on that trip. I thought why not introduce quick history lessons and other tidbits I learned along my travels to kids in a hands-on way with food? History can be boring but when paired with food, it becomes a WHOLE other subject.

When I was a kid, I attended a cultural camp during the summer and loved it so much that I became a chef. This program is for the kids out there who love cooking, like I did. I know it changed my life!

Thank you @sourblonde for inviting me to talk about my career as a chef to your 4th grade students! I had a great time and loved showing them this simple recipe for banana bonbons. This is a great dairy-free dessert that keeps in the freezer. Just pop them out 10 minutes before eating and it’s the perfect way to end a meal with just a little sweet bite. I decorated some with patriotic sprinkles for Memorial Day coming up! Others with flaky salt and toasted almonds. . Thank you for this recipe idea from @mariefiebach ! . BANANA BONBONS 2-3 ripe bananas 1 cup chocolate chips 1 tsp. Coconut or vegetable oil Chopped toasted almonds or peanuts (optional) Sprinkles(optional) . Equipment: Knife Cup measure Teaspoon measure Measuring cup Spoon Fork Parchment or wax paper Baking tray . Do beforehand: Slice banana in 1/2-3/4 inch rounds and freeze bananas 8 hours or overnight. Place on parchment paper or wax paper on baking sheet and in freezer. . Place chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl like a measuring cup. Add coconut oil and microwave on high for 1 min. Stir for 20 second intervals or until melted. Dip bananas in chocolate and sprinkle with toppings. Use fork to retrieve if coating all banana. Wait couple minutes because will be hard to eat or freeze (not fridge) remaining in a ziplock. (Use pineapple, mango, berries or other fruit if banana isn’t your favorite) . #banana #quickdesserts #careerday #cheflife #fruitdessert #4ingredients #lowcarb #chocolate #kidscooking #kidsrecipes #simplepleasures #simplecooking #noguiltfood #simplecookingcookingshow #memorialday #memorialdayrecipes

“My favorite thing about Joanna’s class was her focus on simple and delicious. Everything Joanna taught us used fresh ingredients and focused on bringing out those flavors. Most of the dishes were only a few ingredients, but incredibly tasty. . .

She created a great environment and knew how to instruct without being overbearing or pushy. She’s an amazing teacher, with a great background and qualifications to match. I would highly recommend her class.”
