Sharing Food Knowledge: Pass It On

Light blue background, on the left image of a big yellow sun cartoon style with eyes, nose and smile, on the right the text Summerland / Sous le soleil with a small hot air ballon over the text.

This week, you will cook a Rice Paper Salad Rolls with Soy Dipping Sauce.

Pass it on is about friends teaching friends how to cook good food from scratch. Food and cooking knowledge is best taught through hands on learning- person to person. Sharing a recipe or cooking skill is a valuable lesson in leadership, community and teamwork. Sharing, or “passing on” our skills and knowledge for others to use is a fun and important way to keep healthy cooking skills alive and thriving. Chef from Cultivating Cooks will lead you through a fun and easy to replicate recipe and then you will be asked to “pass it on” to other family members or friends to share your knowledge. Ages 4-12 *Younger chefs must have a grown-up with them during the program.

Registrants will receive an additional email with the Zoom link ahead of the program. Click here for Summerland program FAQs.
