RD Goes to Monster Kitchen!

Those of you who have been following RD’s homeschool blog, already know that RD loves to cook and because of this, we often do activities that will encourage him to develop this love for cooking. We’ve tried to ascertain whether he likes cooking food or baking and he always insists that he loves doing both.

Last week, one of RD’s cousins attended a 5-day cooking class at Monster Kitchen in Cagayan De Oro City. When RD learned of this, he also expressed the desire to attend one. Monster Kitchen is a well-known supplier of baking supplies, but the owners have since expanded their business into a baking school as well. During the summer months (which is April to May in the Philippines), they offer short-term classes for kids and adults alike.

And so, we trooped to Cagayan De Oro so RD could attend the JUNIOR MASTERCHEF WORKSHOP: The Dessert Edition class. As we entered the classroom, we thought RD would need us to stay a little longer as this was a new place and he would be surrounded by people he didn’t know, so we dawdled in the hallway a bit, peeking now and then through the window that faced the classroom. Well, we were in for a surprise! When RD saw us, he mouthed, “Go away!” and began making shooing motions with his hand. Properly chastised, us grown-ups reluctantly left. It was our first realization that our little boy has now grown up. 🙂

After 4 hours, we went to pick him up, and this was his take on his first day: “It was awesome, Ma! When I’m already a chef, I’ll ask Kuya to make a tv-video of me cooking!” Then he proudly showed us the goodies he’d made, which we promptly ate with gusto! Yum, yum! Check out his pictures!

JUNIOR MASTERCHEF WORKSHOP: The Dessert Edition: Day 1– Cookies and Bars, Day 2– Pies and Muffins Day 3: Cakes and Icings Day 4: Refrigerated Desserts Day 5: Pizza and Doughnuts. They learned more than 20 recipes in this class. Class fee is Php 3,800 all inclusive of apron, toque, ingredients and manual. Ages 5-18.
