Happy Holidays & See You Next Year

img_5433

It’s amazing how fast this year has gone by.  Someone said to me recently that the years seem to whiz by faster as one gets older – that’s so true.  We are hoping to keep it slow and simple these holidays, to pause and reflect, and think about how to make ourselves better, and by extension the world better.

We are also looking forward to next year and all the cooking fun we have planned with little ones and grown-ups.  There are many new ideas and plans we have up our sleeves, and hopefully some of them will work out.  Meanwhile, please note the dates below if your kids can join us, we’d love to cook with them.


Jan. 16, 2017 — MLK, JR. HOLIDAY CAMP: “AMERICAN CLASSICS” 

How would your kids like to spend the day cooking great American classics to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day?  Your kiddos will learn to cook Americana favorites from classic mac and cheese to apple pie.…. and with a nod of our ever-changing country and food traditions, we will also have fun creating a modern-fusion version of each dish to serve alongside the original. 

Jan. 17, 2017 — Asian Noodle Bowls

Join us for day of the ultimate comfort food – Asian Noodle Bowls and some other favorites from Asian restaurants.

Feb 9 & Feb 10, 2017 — “Everyday Indonesian” at 18 Reasons
Learn how to create a true and truly good Indonesian meal at home! This is a menu you can whip up fairly quickly when you tire of your nightly routine, or when you want to impress some friends for a casual gathering.

A Little Yumminess Summer Camp – First Week Fun!

IMG_5257

We had the best week traveling with an AMAZING group of kids.  They were adventurous, enthusiastic and incredibly well-behaved on top of being fantastic listeners.  We couldn’t have asked for a better group of kids as we do something we love – hang out kids and teach them about the world and food.  We traveled to India, Scandinavia, Japan, the Middle East and ended the week with a Mexican fiesta to which we invited the parents.  Tacos, music and a reading of our creative writing about food, ended a very memorable week.  Somehow, my daughter, managed to attend the camp for a third time – we are calling her a “camp-crasher” around here. 🙂

Next we are off to other lovely parts of the world..and hanging out with another tremendous group of kids at 18 Reasons.

Hopefully, your kids can join us next year – get on our mailing list here, if you want to get on our advance sign up list.

 

See you in September!

Gone Fishin

We’re taking a little end of summer break and will be back with more yumminess in September.  In the meantime, here are just a few highlights from our “A Little Yumminess Around the World” summer camps. We had a blast cooking and tasting world cuisines from every corner of the globe.

A big thanks to all the young chefs who came along to cook with us — we love your creativity, joy and curiosity! Much gratitude also goes to our wonderful pals at Bernal Cutlery and CUESA for sharing your knowledge and skills with our campers…. and a big thanks to See Saw in Hayes Valley for providing a bright and lovely venue for our classes.

– XOXX Stacie & Simran
