I may call my self very old fashioned person. I like to keep up traditions and habits in our family. All kinds of activities, that keep on loosing the meaning these days in the modern world. Baking sweets for X - mass, crafting Eastern eggs, picking grapes in autumn, making own sour cabbage and many more. For me it’s important to show my children the basic, simple and beautiful things in life.
I do live healthy life, eat light and fresh meals with less meat, but on this one special day in year I do forget everything around me. All the childhood memories, tastes, smell come back to me, when I visit my uncle Miloš for the traditional shambles (I hope to use the right word for explanation). Teaching kids to be great full for what the nature gives to us, we all enjoy the tasty home made meals. It’s always a sad day for the poor pigs, but I try not to think about it too much. Well, life must go on!
Every kid loves to play. The funny thing about them is, that even if we think that toys would make them happy, they love to explore the simple things in life at the end. My girls are great example for it. They always love to watch and to help in the kitchen, join me at work, help everyone around them. My friend Barborka told me about the cooking class for kids at Jemine few days ago. Without thinking, I knew right away, what to do on Saturday morning with my kids.
Anet and Janica from Jemine – official ambassadors of Jamie Olivier & Food Revolution Day for Slovak Republic, who I may call my friends, are two great young woman, who put all their energy behind teaching young generation, school kids and even grownups how to eat proper healthy and tasty food. Few months ago they have opened their Cooking school at Stará Tržnica. Great project, beautiful interiors, marvelous kitchen, tasty recipes. As you may see on the pictures, our kids have really enjoyed every minute of their cooking class. Just have look on their web side for more info about their work and coming cooking classes at www.jemine.sk .
Have fun while cooking!
