Everyone loves to eat, so why not make it an event? The Valpo team divided in two, and half of the students participated in a cooking class while the other half showed their creativity in an art workshop (the two groups will swap activities in a few days). The cooking class took place at a local high school called Liceo María Luisa Bombal that has vocational cooking classes. The students learned how to make a traditional chicken soup called cazuela de ave and beef empanadas. The students had a blast and got to partake of the fruit of their labor. It was seriously delicious, and I'm not just saying that because I'm a program leader and I have to. It was scrumptious, and the students were proud of their work. (I heard a few of say things like, "Wow, I can cook!").
Keep your eyes out for an upcoming post about the art workshop.
