I’m thrilled to announce that I’m co-hosting an upcoming class in the Web’s first-ever virtual cooking school, Cooking Connections, and I would love for you to join me! Here’s what you need to know to participate…
The class I am co-hosting is called “Expanding Your Family’s Palate by Placating Picky Eaters,” and it is hosted by my pals Jennifer Leal (Savor the Thyme) and Kelsey Banfield (The Naptime Chef), and Kimberly Coleman (Mom in the City). We will be talking about how to make meals work for all members of the family, healthy and interesting foods that kids AND adults love, and strategies for getting picky eaters to try new things.
You can bet that being the agitator that I am, my first question after being asked to join as co-host was about use of the word “placate.” (Yes, I’m already aware that I think too much, but words matter and I’m not in the business of placating anyone when it comes to food. Well, except maybe myself!) I was assured that it was just a fun play on words and that this class is by no means focused on catering to picky tastes. Knowing our three fab hostesses, I’m confident that there will be a wide range of POVs and ideas. Maybe even some healthy, respectful disagreement with great suggestions for whatever your approach.
When: Wednesday, March 2, at 1 p.m. ET
How to Join: Sign up on the Cooking Connections registration page
We want YOU to ask questions, share recipes and chime in with your own suggestions! So please join!
