Just like the Fine Arts, cooking and enjoying good food has the potential to lift up the human soul to a state of higher fulfillment. In addition to that, the food we eat directly influences the state of our health.
We believe that if our children learn to appreciate the value of good food early on, it can make a big difference for our society.
On Tuesday afternoons, professional chef Rainer Goerling teaches children and adolescents the basics of cooking and how to use kitchen utensils while the students prepare different delicious international dishes each week. The class covers various cooking techniques, the value of good nutrition, its effects on our health, as well as Oriental, Asian, Latin American, and European cooking styles. As a reward after the work is done, the food creations are eaten together or wrapped up and taken home.
Would you like to dig deeper? Or maybe you dream of becoming a professional cook? Our complete training program extends over four semesters and includes topics such as:
- Methodical Competence
- Social Skills
- Human Resources Competence
Children learn the right handling of kitchen utensils such as knives, hot pots, and the oven in order to ensure a completely secure atmosphere. Many accidents in the kitchen happen because of a lack of methodical competence or expertise. The children (as well as their parents) are made aware of how important a balanced nutrition is for health. We explore the different methods of cooking, the effects of spices and herbs on the taste while reducing the usage of salt, and discuss the make-up of various foods as well as possibilities for using herbs and spices as medical remedies. Taking their personal nutritional needs into account, children may also express their own wishes as to what recipes will be learned.
Further topics include waste prevention and separation, because at @melody we want to contribute to a sustainable world.
The size of each group is limited to a maximum number of 5 children. Participants must bring a current negative quick test certificate (e.g., from the school or a test center) or present a certificate of inoculation. In exceptional cases, a free quick test will be made available at @melody 15 minutes prior to the start of the class. As long as official Corona protection regulations may require, a face mask must be worn during class.
