Chef Brittany Collazo is mentoring the next generation of culinary stars! Collazo started an after-school cooking program called Lettuce Cook years ago.Before the pandemic, the professionally-trained chef would travel to a trio of Houston-area schools to teach children how to whip up delicious entrees during her after school program.
Collazo moved her program online weeks after a national emergency was declared in March. Children and their parents can follow along live through Zoom video chat. All you have to do is register for the class.
We are so glad to hear so many of you are loving a virtual cooking class for kids. KHOU 11 News first shared a story about Lettuce Cook last month. The free lessons are such a hit because they give families something to look forward to during this pandemic.
Professional chef Brittany Collazo, who owns Lettuce Cook, first began offering the free lessons on Zoom in March. The class size was ranged from 30 to 60 kids before our report aired. Now, more than 100 children from all across the country are logging in for the weekly lessons. And guess what, because it’s online, there’s plenty of room for more students!
