Junior Ahran Cho was inspired to start this club by her own love for cooking and baking and decided to share her passion with others. “[Cooking] is my favorite thing to do, and it’s a great stress reliever,” Cho said. “ I thought it would be really fun to cook and bake with friends.”
Club Day proved to be quite successful for the club. “I was planning on getting around 60 to 70 members, but we ended up with around 130,” Cho said.
With only about 30 minutes to meet during lunch, Cho plans to work quickly and efficiently. “I’ll be passing out the recipe, and as I demo the dish, everyone will have their own station to make their own dish too.” Cho said.
A variety of dishes, including the homemade truffles that Cho handed out during Club Day, will be cooked, ranging from small meals to desserts. However, if time constraints turn into a serious issue, Cho may consider holding meetings after school.
Many members are interested in gaining new cooking skills and learning new recipes. “I love eating food that I make, and I’m looking forward to learning new recipes and basic cooking skills,” junior Maytal Abramson said. Members with all levels of experience are welcome to join.
Joining the club is also a great way to make new friends with the same interests. “I’m looking forward to a lot of fun meetings because everybody who was there at the first meeting seemed really fun to be around,” junior Luis Schubert said.
Those interested in joining Cooking and Baking Club should go to V-9 on Wednesdays during lunch. Join if you want to meet new people with similiar interests and learn how to make different dishes. There is sure to be delicious food, informative tutorials and smiling faces.
