Play in the kitchen

Over the summer, I had the opportunity to observe some kids cooking classes for a story for Edible Ojai Magazine. One of the classes was taught by Chef Robin Goldstein, owner of Playing in the Kitchen. Truly gifted and at ease teaching in the kitchen, Robin is one of a kind. She truly believes in allowing students, both young and old, to get down and dirty and messy in order to learn the skills and joy involved in creating a meal. Interested? Check out her next class on holiday desserts:

Sunday December 6th @ 1:00 - 3:00 pm
Ojai Culinary School, Lavender Inn
210 East Matilija Street, Ojai

Enjoy a warm glass of Mulled Red Wine, a wonderful way to warm up while you make Polenta Cookies with Sweet Cranberries, Almond- Tea Pear Gratin with Earl Grey Tea, Italian Panetonne Bread Pudding and a fabulous S'More Brownie Torte with toasted Marshmallow topping. Class fee $55. Call the Lavender Inn to make a reservation (805-646-6635).
