Chef: So we are going to start on our tomato sauce. What has to happen for that? We already have the onion sliced. I need someone to volunteer to cut me a carrot. Boy, I have lots of volunteers, I have lots of other things to do too.
I need all of these herbs picked for me so I am going to put this down since we are not doing any cutting down here, I can have the three of you or two of you, how about you two work on those, picking those herbs for me right here.
Child: Am I cutting with her?
Chef: Yes, you are. You have volunteered, you were there. But I am going to help you so you just wait. All of these different herbs, we have Basil, Oregano and Time. So for the Basil, I just want you to tear it up, just like that. For the Oregano, we are just going to pull them off and then you are going to shred those leaves as well and we are going to keep these stems and then for the Time, you just pull off these sticks and then go against the grain because these leaves are going up this way as you want to pull them, just pull them off, just like that.
And we are going to have a nice pile of herbs right there for our sauce.
Child: Will I start cutting right now?
Chef: I am going to show you and then you will get to make our meat balls. Okay, carrot. I already cut off the root and the growing end, so I just need you to dice this up. So I want you to put your hand on the carrot here, grab your knife. We are just going to need nice, small slices and I am going to show you. We are going to go straight ahead like this. Good job. Nice thin slices so they cook really quick. So the size of our onions are small, so we are going to have small carrots too.
Child: We never had carrots in pasta sauce.
Chef: Do you know why I put carrots in pasta sauce?
Child: Not really.
Chef: Because carrots are sweet and that means if my tomatoes are really acidic, the carrots, see this, so you can have your thumb sticking out there, buddy. There you go. If you have carrots in it, it sweetens it up naturally without adding extra sugar and that's exactly what I want. You are doing good. I am going to get my pan heated and then I will go.
Child 2: Do you want me to just use the meat to make ball of it?
Chef: We are going to season it first and I have a couple of options for you over there. I have the herbs that are obviously right in front of you and then we are going to put in some crackers in there as well.
Child: Is this done?
Chef: Yeah, just pull this apart with your fingers and then you can come on. Alright, so we have some crackers and we will probably take, let us say about five of those and crunch those up and throw that in there. Yeah, yeah, you are hungry? You want to go help her?
Chef: Okay, why don't you give this a slide down? Put some crackers in there, we need some eggs so I have this already mixed, egg of mixture, I am just going to throw some eggs in there. You guys get mix that in there.
Children: With our hands?
Chef: Yeah, with your hands. You are cooks now. And look, I am going to do it. Oh! You guys are all going to get sticky when you are doing the Ravioli Tool, look at that. You have to wash your hands before you touch anything when you are done here.
