Brownie Snacks Badge Package (2 – 2-1/2 hours)
$18 – 20 per person
While we prepare a savory snack from a different country, a holiday dessert,
a snack for energy, and a fruit smoothie, we’ll discuss the ingredients we use
and how they are healthy for our bodies!
Junior Simple Meals Badge Package (3 – 4 hours)
$20 – 25 per person
Cooking is a lot of fun! To keep it that way, we have to be safe and clean in the kitchen. We’ll discuss cleanliness and safety which we’ll then practice as we cook together!
We’re making an egg dish, an international sandwich, a unique dessert, and a salad meal!
Cadette New Cuisines Badge Package (5 – 6 hours)
$30 – 35 per person
Sharing a meal is the one of the best ways to truly connect with people no matter
who they are or where they’re from! In our culinary tour, we’ll cook a West African stew,
a corn dish from Louisiana, a traditional pie that originated in the Middle Ages,
and a gluten-free or vegan treat!
Senior Locavore Badge Package (2 parts: 3 – 4 hours each)*
$45 – 55 per person
“Going local” is more than just a trendy food buzzword. It’s actually a complex issue with both benefits and challenges. We’ll define what going local means and how that definition can be fluid when we consider globalization, where people live, and even climate change. We’ll also compile a list of our local food sources like farmers markets, sustainable eating guides, and Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs). And then, we’ll make a simple dish and an Italian dessert from local ingredients. Finally, we’ll challenge ourselves by preparing a local meal…with a twist!
Ambassador Dinner Party Badge Package (2 parts: 3 – 4 hours each)*
$45 – 55 per person
When planning a menu, it’s important to consider the following: who is going to be eating (do they have food allergies or a special diet); how the textures and flavors will be balanced throughout the entire meal; and the cost which includes not only the price of the food, but the cook’s time and effort, transportation, and many other hidden items.
With this knowledge, we’ll put together a guest list, design a meal, find recipes, and write up a shopping list. At a later date, we’ll host our dinner party. We’ll divide into teams, set the table, decorate, cook, garnish, and serve our meal and of course, clean up! Finally, we’ll have an honest discussion about the dinner party: what went well, what could’ve gone better, and how much personal effort we put into the party!
(If there is a long gap between the dates of the first part and the second,
then the girls will be given a recipe from the meal to practice at home
before the dinner party.)
