6-29-11 Kid Chef Eliana prepares for her cooking class at Camp Girl Power


Yesterday, Kid Chef Eliana taught cooking classes at Camp Girl Power in Destrehan, Louisiana. First, she began with a presentation on stage. She sang, talked about her life as a kid chef, her travels, and answered questions.

The girls were divided into groups of three. We set up stations in the kitchen where they had blenders and all the ingredients to make Kid Chef Eliana’s “Fresh from the Garden Salsa.”

They followed along as Kid Chef Eliana instructed them on how to prep the ingredients and what to add to the salsa.

All the girls raved about the salsa, saying how delicious it was. YUM!

My favorite part about Kid Chef Eliana’s class was the feedback. Here is a fan email Kid Chef Eliana received after the class:

“Hey you probably don’t know me but I am Mary. I was also at camp girl power (Beecuz You Matter) and I was the completely psycho kid in the first group. Any way I wanted to tell you that you inspire me to become a chef so if you don’t mind can you e mail me whenever you have a new cookbook coming out and tell me where I can get one. Thanks a lot, Mary”

It’s amazing to see Kid Chef Eliana making a difference!

Until next time…

Warmly, Dianne
