Briefs 1.28.2021

4-H offers online cooking class and competition 
Cooking with Kristi is a free six-part on-demand cooking video series that teaches kids the basics of safe food preparation. Young cooks will make some creative, tasty, and economical new foods; learn about basic kitchen safety and sanitation; and learn a variety of cooking techniques and culinary terms. The videos will be available through a private Facebook group. Upon registration, you will receive a welcome email with a link to the Facebook group, PDFs of all the recipes, and links to additional videos on kitchen safety and other important topics. Participants will have the opportunity to show off their completed dishes within the Facebook group. All youth who post pictures of all six recipes by April 1, 2021 will be entered into a drawing for a prize package of kitchen items. Participants who confirm they have completed the survey included in the initial welcome email will get an additional entry into the drawing. There will be up to five winners. Link to register:
