Kathy and I are privelaged to teach a gourmet cooking class for 4H.
Yesterday was our annual 4H Christmas party. The kids come at 1PM and cook for 3 fast paced hours and prepare to serve their parents at 4PM. We had an agressive menu with 5 items to be prepared.
They all worked their tails off to make this happen in 3 hours with only 5 of them to pull it off - one was a little late but you will see her later
Here are the appetizers
Mango Crab stacks - this is the appetizer that Kathy and I won the Temecula Valley Wine Society Appetizer contest with
Here are the sausage rolls
Now for the Angel Hair Flans
Cherry tomatoes stuffed with fresh mozzarella and basil then drizzled with balsamic and olive oil
And the Chocolate Trufle Brownie Cups - some with sprinkles and some with crushed candy canes
In additon to all of this, they also made a punch consisting of Apple juice, cranberry juice, red hot candies and lemon juice. This punch was served both hot and iced
Here they are each holding one of the dishes in route to serve their parents for the party -
We are so proud of these kids. They really are awesome to work with and I am working on converting one of the dads to join our smoking team - I see a smoker in his future
Thanks for looking -
