Cooking demos bring fun with food



“My mom used to make this when I was a kid,” he said of the handwritten recipe from his grandmother. “At first, I was like, ‘I don’t know,’ but I liked it.”

“It’s called quality control when you taste it yourself,” he said, sneaking as a sample of it with a grin.

After he finished, Mindy McCulley, Barren County family and consumer science extension agent for the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, shared a quick recipe for Very Berry Salsa, and then it was time for her colleague at the extension office to do a cooking with kids demonstration.

“The idea is to get your kids to try new things,” said Vicki Britt, nutrition program assistant, adding they are more likely to do that if it’s something they’ve prepared themselves.

Two girls not much taller than the table on which they were working smeared peanut butter on a soft flour tortilla, topped that with slices of banana and rolled it up. Britt suggested using cream cheese as a substitution if nut allergies are an issue. The roll can be dipped in yogurt and then crushed cereal or graham crackers.

The rolled up treat can also be sliced, with each disk topped with another piece of fruit, and the child can serve it as an hors d'oeuvre to her friends, Britt said.
