The Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad have been cooking up a storm with the foodies at Rancho Carlsbad Estates lately:

At their recent first Cooking Club meeting, they made pizza from scratch – even the dough! The children not only learn how to prep ingredients and clean up, but recently etiquette lessons have been thrown into the mix. “Perhaps the best part of the class is sitting down together and bonding while enjoying what their hard work produced,” observed Club Director Jim Salvia. “We limit the number of kids who can attend, so the children and seniors can form an on-going relationship.”

Sounds like a match made in the kitchen. For the rest of the story follow the jump.The Way To The Heart Is Through The Stomach

Budding chefs from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad have joined forces with cooking enthusiasts from Rancho Carlsbad Estates to whip up some delicious taste treats.

At their recent first Cooking Club meeting, they made pizza from scratch – even the dough! The children not only learn how to prep ingredients and clean up, but recently etiquette lessons have been thrown into the mix. “Perhaps the best part of the class is sitting down together and bonding while enjoying what their hard work produced,” observed Club Director Jim Salvia. “We limit the number of kids who can attend, so the children and seniors can form an on-going relationship.”

“It’s really cool,” said Club member Jose, age 9. “My favorite part was just spending time with the seniors. The cooking was fun, too!”

“The kids usually make a main dish and a dessert, and they determine what will be created at future lessons,” said Rancho Carlsbad’s Sandra Hunsicker. “Currently on the list are chowder, chocolate cake, brownies, and burritos!”
