(Video) Kid Cooks to the Rescue: Building Skills to Last a Lifetime is part of the Food Experience Unplugged Video Series. The series spotlights a variety of ways people create positive food experiences, and demonstrates how you can use these “ingredients” to create positive food experiences in your own life.
Children generally have a keen sense of discovery and a thirst for knowledge. Such is often the case with cooking. Kid cooks plunge right into the sticky, gooey, messy, and terribly tasty thick of things. They learn by doing – and make memories in the process.
Daria Gordhamer starts her kids young in the kitchen. From simple steps of mixing and retrieving items from the fridge, to cooking complete meals, she has taught her children to have a culinary mindset.
She encourages each one to use their math, reading, and science skills, as well as their creative genius. She expresses confidence in her children, and helps them develop the self-confidence they need for a lifetime – both in and out of the kitchen.
