GERMAN Cuisine! (6 week session)

The Good Food Factory is excited to offer German Cuisine for the first time ever! German Cuisine

“Germany is a land full of culinary delights and old World techniques of food preservation through salting, smoking, curing or pickling is still a common way of preparing fish, meats, and vegetables. Just look at the popular dishes of matjes (pickled herring), sauerbraten (roast beef cured in vinegar and wine), or sauerkraut, and you will find ancient cooking methods still in use today.” – TheSpruce.com

Each class and recipe will explore traditional cooking methods, while also introducing your y oung chef to new cultures and flavors. Chefs will learn knife skills, measuring, pouring, cooking terminology as well as cooking theory and safety. Classes are just as fun as they are delicious!

Teacher & Curriculum

Chef Amanda has been teaching children how to cook for over 8 years with after school classes, field trips, assemblies, birthday parties, cooking camps, and through her Emmy Award winning television show, The Good Food Factory. Her food philosophy focuses on “good food, from scratch!” and her classes have been described in the 2012 issue Best of San Diego Magazine as “the best way to get your kids to eat their veggies.”  Amanda has always taught ‘real’ cooking to children: wholesome meals that involve a lot of chopping, grating and peeling, as well as fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables. Her students return time and time again to take more classes and it was through their dedication to learning and their hunger for advanced skills that she realized they were ready for more. “These kids could go to culinary school!” Amanda thought… and the idea for a cooking school for kids was born. A program where youth have the opportunity to learn step by step methods for being a master chef. However, there is only one rule: “The FOOD is the only thing we take seriously.” Cooking curriculum and programs offered by the The Good Food Factory are created and hosted by Amanda, and she promises that her classes are just as fun as they are delicious and educational.
