From Apples to Beets…

Introducing the first of many cooking classes I will be offering:  From Apples to Beets: Making Your Own Organic Baby Food.

And I need your help! I’m looking for 8-10 people interested in making their own baby food and willing to be my first guinea pigs. If you (or any of your family, friends, and work buddies) are interested, just send me an email.

Classes will be held in my Emeryville, CA kitchen.  The dates are TBD but will be in the next 3-4 weeks.  Cost to participate will only be $20.00 per person which covers the cost of food.  We will be focused on making baby food for infants primarily between 6-12 months, however you can easily adapt the techniques and ingredients to make food for children of all ages.

Here’s the class description:

From Apples to Beets: Making Your Own Organic Baby Food

This hands-on class will explore the various types of whole grains, vegetables, and fruit your little one can enjoy as they begin eating solid foods, and the different methods that any home cook can use to make baby food in their own kitchen.

Participants will make several wholesome baby foods such as brown rice cereal, roasted sweet potatoes, homemade applesauce, roasted golden beets and much more.   You get to take home about a week’s worth of food which can be enjoyed right away or frozen for up to several months until your baby is ready to eat.

I hope you’ll be able to join me for my first of many wonderful cooking classes!  And a reminder, please email me if you or anyone you know is interested in taking this class.

    The baby food we’ll be making will primarily be for babies between 6-12 months, but you can change the ingredients and techniques to make food for children of all ages. I added that part into the blog, so thanks for the reminder!

    What baby age is recommended for the cooking class? That would be helpful if you could target moms with babies age 9-24 months…or whatever! Happy cooking!
