The Keepers of the Rolling Dragon Household is honored to be able to offer a three class tract to the children of Aethelmearc in basic kitchen etiquette. Goals for the classes will be to instruct the children in basic kitchen safety, food skills and cleanliness. First we will cover proper dress, hand washing, food handling, kitchen layout, dish washing, safety and how to handle issues. Second session will cover quick review of first session, food prep, basic equipment skills and knife skills. Third session will quickly review first two sessions and include information on foods considered medieval, spices, developing a menu and researching ideas. Each session will end with the children making a dish to sample and share.
There is not an age specific limit on the classes, BUT please keep in mind that we will be:
giving handouts that the children will need to write information on
the children will be handling foods, knives, peelers, be around hot equipment and need to have adequate awareness of surroundings.
Direct adult supervision will always be provided, so consider what your child's abilities are when signing them up please. Patents are welcome to stay and participate too, so that may assist in decision making as well as allow them to observe any adaptations that are taught to their children when using equipment.
I would offer the guideline that most children about 8 and up would be able to participate fully in the first two sessions.
For the children who have completed the classes successfully, we will be giving them a kit of a simple hat that they will need to sew together. It will allow others to know that these kids have basic kitchen skills and would like to assist in a kitchen at events.
As time permits, the KRD Household wishes to provide a very simple class for children as young as three to participate in that will cover very basic things like hand washing, basic food handling and then create something that they can also sample and share.
The final goal of this project is to be able to have a lunch prepared and served by the children at an event in each of the regions of the Kingdom. We wish thank the autocrats, cooks and others who have been supportive of this project and have offered to allow us to swoop in and engage the children thus far. Their Royal Highnesses have graciously agreed to having Their lunch at War Practice be prepared and served by the children, which is very exciting for the children who have already worked with us.
The events that will be offering these classes should include information on their site page. We have a short list of expected dates that the instructors can be at and autocrats have confirmed inclusion. To allay possible fears, all primary instructors have received the necessary society level clearances and we will be observing the two deep rules.
Any questions regarding this project or offers to include this activity for the children at an event, can be directed to kprdgn at aol.com
