I've been down at Joe's school running cooking sessions the last two days. Very manic but tonnes of fun. We've had close to 150 kids take part from Yr 1 through to Yr 6. They were creating their own Rice Paper Rolls from scratch. Chopping the veg, soaking the papers, filling them with a range of veggies, herbs and marinated chicken.
It was a very popular activity and we had queues of kids waiting their turn. Joe kindly came to help mentor in the session for the younger kids. Once they had created their own roll they could take it to the eating table and dip it in the soy sauce if they wished. As always it's fascinating watching what kids choose when they have free reign and are being influenced by adults other than their parents and their peers! Lots were keen to try the daikon and there was general amazement at the magical transformation of the rice paper. It's a really fun activity to do with your kids and of course a great way to add a few veggies into the mix.
