Loving my time at Brainfood!
From Guest Blogger Melissa Zimmerman, Brainfood intern....
It has only been two months since I started interning and volunteering at Brainfood, but what an exciting two months it has been! Time at Brainfood is fun, enjoyable and delicious! I always look forward to Mondays and Tuesdays to work with the Kitchen All Stars, anticipating the tasty meals we will be cooking for the night. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I would say the Lemon-Thyme Chicken, Jamaican Beef Patties and Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli have been some of my favorites. I have been amazed at how organized and skilled the students are when it comes to cooking, and have even learned a thing or two from them myself. It’s great to witness their skill development and watch as they apply their knowledge and past workshop experiences to the next class. The students have become increasingly efficient in their time management, cooking and cleaning and they work together extremely well. The best part is when we all get to test out the foods at the end and see (and taste!) the hard work that has paid off. Even better, the kids get to take home the leftovers to share with their friends and family, and to show everyone what’s been cooking at Brainfood. I am definitely looking forward to the rest of the spring semester!
