February 27 teen cooking event to benefit Chelsea Community Kitchen

Old World New Cooking School (of Chelsea) offers free "be a French chef!" class in Chelsea on Saturday, February 27, 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., for up to eight teens, as a benefit for the Chelsea Community Kitchen.

If you enjoyed "Ratatouille" and thought you'd like to be the rat chef genius, here's your chance. Eight teens pile into two different cars, with adult supervision, and race to Ann Arbor to shop: A2 farmer's market, Zingerman's, Monahan's, etc. Eat lunch. Back to Chelsea to the Yellow Door. Prep! Prep! Music, laughter, big knives, mincing, dicing, much learning, much fun. Make the sauce! Adjust the seasonings! Make it perfect!

At 7:00 p.m., the guests arrive. (Up to 30 guests, so RSVP today!) Appetizers must be ready! Tables must be set! Light the candles! Serve the wine! The guests are seated and... as Lumiere said, "Dinner is served." Poisson au Beurre Blanc. Boeuf Bourguignon. Porc Rillette. Ooh-la-la... très fancy-schmancy.

Only room for eight teens -- size of the kitchen and considerations of safety permit no more. If this is a success, other classes and dinners will probably be offered. Please share this with any teens or parents of teens who might be interested.
