Lack of knowledge and comfort level in the kitchen are primarily why Samantha Barnes founded Los Angeles-based Raddish, a monthly step-by-step cooking kit subscription service that provides recipe cards, grocery lists, kitchen tools and culinary education.

She pointed out five benefits to getting kids in the kitchen:

1. “It’s a way for everyone to excel. They may struggle with fractions, but they read a recipe and use fractions in measuring and suddenly fractions make sense.”

What if a dairy product gets mixed in a food product and a lactose intolerant person is served that dish? What if raw meat that contains bacteria gets in contact with some food product through a knife? Such scenarios have happened and they could if we’re not careful about it. Even a slightest of danger could endanger someone’s health.

That’s the reason why colour coding in kitchen is one of the first things that the catering students are taught. It’s a simple yet asuper-effective method to ensure food safety in the

I, fortunately, have no major embarrassing garden moments to
speak of, but I have definitely made some mistakes over the years. At the time,
these caused me some embarrassment, especially when witnessed by other “expert”
gardeners. Now, though, I realize they were just part of the learning process
and that choosing the right plants for you garden is important for a reason. It
not only saves you from lots or work but heartache too.

Gardening is an activity that cannot be learned solely from
books. You have to get out in the dirt, try things, fail, and try then again.
