What a cute little cake made in private class of 6th graders. Those little flowers are not the easiest thing to pipe and the kids did an amazing job with some perseverance. So proud of them.

I really try not to repeat recipes, even having been open for almost 5 years now, because I have kids who have been with me nearly that whole time. However, I get begged even from those who have done it before to roll sushi!! So that’s what we are doing this week!!

My boys are still asking about the baking class. I captured the process down and made it into a video to keep as a good memory. Thank you for an engaging class Laura Ragano! Thought of sharing this with you 😁
Thank you Chef Laura Ragano! Michael, Gabriel and I had a great time learning baking with you today! The boys had a blast and so did I !!! And the cookies taste great too!!! 😁

This feels like a lifetime ago when the “old normal” was the regular life we took for granted. This is the World’s Largest Starbucks in Chicago - I took the boys for a long weekend right before Christmas as part of their Christmas present. It was a special weekend of behind the scenes at the Shedd Aquarium, private cooking class with my favorite Oui Chef Chicago (we have done her virtual classes and they are fantastic!), we had high tea at Vanille Patisserie and we shopped and went to fabulous restaurants. My boys keep asking when we will go on a trip again, I don’t know when that will be other than a few possible winter stays at the farm - Palmquist Farm or some Airbnb stays around our state. But in the meantime we will keep looking for adventures we can safely do in and around the state of Wisconsin! Do you have any ideas or tips?

The empanadas the girls made today are amazing. This is the third Tuesday in a row they've cooked a fabulous dinner for our family with Chef Laura. Since we spend most of our time in FL the girls can't attend class often. A silver lining for us from the pandemic is getting to take cooking class again. They look forward to it each week. It's been such a great experience for them and we are so thankful for Chef Laura!
Looking for a fun activity? Check out local business Oui Chef Chicago (run by a Nettelhorst parent and supporter). They will be posting instructional videos for kids and their families 2-3 times a week. We can't wait to try the first, a frittata! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrb5dyofXCQNC-7Z7ZmZV4Q
Chef Laura has created the perfect business! An ideal environment for kids to learn amazing life skills and lessons, kitchen etiquette, and more! Chef has them exploring and learning about food and culture from all around the globe and is truly a world class educator and cook. Any child would be lucky to attend one of her classes or parties! Five stars!
