I always wanted to organize something about food with kids. And recently, I did! A cooking class with children and their parents. The average age was 3,5 y.o with the youngest one being 17 months. I choose an easy recipe - a tiramisu with raspberries and speculoos (Belgian biscuits). Just for the record, the normal attention span is 3 to 5 minutes per year of a child's age, and therefore, the preparation time should not go over 15-20 minutes or you will lose the little ones. With that in mind, it is best to prepare all the ingredients beforehand leaving the children to just cut, pour ingredients, mix and try!
Since cooking is not only a chemical process but a sensorial experience, when you cook with children, their 5 senses should be activated:
Here is the recipe for a small tiramisu to make with your kids.
Please share your experiences of cooking with your kids!
