This week in Kids Cooking Enrichment we made a delicious Artichoke Spinach Dip. We talked about what an appetizer is . The young chefs chopped the artichokes, grated the cheese and used a garlic press. They mixed the ingredients and then cooked it in the pan. Most of the chefs really enjoyed the dip. The recipe is below if you would like to try it at home. It is a ‘copy cat’ Applebees recipe. We also read a fun book called “Artichoke Boy” by Scott Mickelson.
