A trip to Portugal and Italy

Today was our last cooking class at the library as part of the Summer Reading Program. We learned all about my favorite two countries, Portugal and Italy.

The kids cooked some amazing and delicious food! We made Lasagna Rollatini, Garlic Bread and Pasteis de Nata. The lasagna rolls were perfect, filled with lots of cheese and organic spinach, topped with sauce and more cheese! You could see the pieces of garlic in the garlic butter on the fresh Ciabatta Bread. DELISH! Then, for dessert we had the famous Pasteis de Nata (custard cups) with a sprinkle of cinnamon. The kids thoroughly enjoyed this entire meal and I was so happy to teach them how to cook it and put it all together. Now that they all have their recipe cards, let’s see if they will cook it for their parents.

I have to apologize that I don’t post any pictures of the food. We are so busy cooking and eating, that I always seem to forget to take photos. Maybe next time I will remember. The food is so good to look at!

I have some good news…. the library has signed me up for five more classes this year so sign up today for the next Kids Cooking Class with Food Jules on the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library website. We have lots of surprises in store for you.
