On Saturday, November 27, the Jamaica Food and Drink Festival (JFDF) welcomed 20 children between ages nine and 13 to the first of its kids' cooking classes, entitled Rooks 2 Cooks and sponsored by National Baking Company Limited. Fall In Chocolate principal Leisha Lyn-Cook led the enthusiastic group through making Chox cheesecake cupcakes and Zesty caramel treats. The well-mannered kids, too, learned about kitchen safety and displayed maturity in teamwork-related activities. Here are snapshots from the Rooks 2 Cooks.
