27 Apr Sweet House Summer Baking Workshop for Kids
Sweet House, one of Cagayan de Oro’s premier culinary schools for baking and pastry making, is about to conclude its summer baking workshop for children, called “Kids in the Kitchen.” The summer baking workshop for kids started last April 11 and will be concluding this April 29. Three full batches will have then graduated, with the ceremonies held at the McDonald’s Limketkai Center.
“Kids in the Kitchen” is under the supervision and tutelage of Chef Cybelle Songco and Chef Mae Ann Roa, two of Sweet House’s mainstays and culinary instructors. Although there is a minimum and maximum age limit in the acceptance of the children for the baking classes, children with special needs are most welcome to be enrolled by their parents.
The first batch concluded last April 11 – 15, while the second batch concluded last April 18 – 22. The third batch started last April 25 and will conclude this coming April 29. Each batch has a morning and afternoon group, each group being limited to 12 children. The morning workshop runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon while the afternoon workshop runs from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. The whole workshop runs for 5 days with a concluding mini-graduation held at the McDonald’s Limketkai Center.
Registration fee is pegged at P3,500 per child. This is already inclusive of Apron, Kitchen Hat, Recipe Sheets, and Ingredients.
Each day the children are taught to bake and create a specific dish. For day 1, they are taught how to make and bake Oreo Cookies and Thumbprint Cookies. On day 2 they are taught how to make Smores and Nanutella. Day 3 has the children creating a Hero Sandwich and Monster Shake. On day 4 it’s making an Ice Cream Sandwich and Bannofee Tart. Finally, day 5 finds the children making Chicken Ham Roll-ups and Baked Mac and Cheese.
