A few months ago I had the chance to meet Chef Peter Sinish. He very graciously gave his time to help my Girl Scout troop earn a cooking badge. What I expected to be an hour of simple recipes turned into something that stuck with me since.
Peter is a professor of culinary arts at HGTC’. While he worked with our girls to cook things both easy to prepare and tasty, he talked to them about nutrition and technique. He wore his love for working with little ones, as well as leaving them with good information and an appreciation for food on the sleeve of his chef’s jacket.
Before meeting Peter, I wasn’t aware he was a children’s cookbook author. It was only after I tasted the homemade applesauce his daughter prepared for us to sample did I know I needed a copy! In it are recipes designed to make with children and celebrate coming together to eat. When he spent time with us, he emphasized how important it was for families to spend time at the table and I couldn’t agree more.
Peter’s book, “The Kid’s Cookbook with Chef Peter” is available for purchase online, but you have the chance to meet him, get an autographed copy, and see a demonstration this weekend at the Myrtle Beach Home Show. He’ll be doing a presentation on Saturday at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. You can see the full schedule here. Click on his time slot to learn more.
Mr. Sinish, thank you for spending time with our troop. While this thanks is long overdue, it’s no less heartfelt. The girls still talk about their time with you and my own children are now lovers of breakfast burritos! 🙂
