Teaching My Granddaughter To Cook

I have been teaching my granddaughter to cook for the last 2 years. She is now 6 years old. She really loves to help.

She started off just stirring the soup and mixing things. It was easy to open a can of soup. She can now use the mixer. She knows how to use the mixer with much reverence. I have started teaching her how to chop things and mix and prepare things.

She told her mother that she wanted cooking lessons. She wanted me to give her cooking lessons. So now we have actually started with specific recipes.
  • She learned to make gravies, she knows everything that goes into making gravy.
  • She knows how to make turkey burgers with all the spices in them.
  • She knows how to make no-sugar cheesecakes. Both kinds; the kind that you cook and the kind that you refrigerate.
  • She has learned about food design. She knows the difference between slopping the food on the plate and putting it there so that it looks pretty.
She loves her little creations. When it is dessert time she has to individually serve each person their dessert plate that she has created. She loves to serve that which she has created.
