Kids Kitchen Rules

  • Talk to a grown-up before you start making a recipe.
  • Wash your hands with warm water and soap.
  • Roll up long sleeves or wear short sleeve shirts.
  • Tie back long hair to keep it away from food.
  • Read the recipe from start to finish.
  • Put out all the tools and ingredients. French chefs call this “mise en place” (say meez en plas).
  • Be sure to set the timer.
  • Measure carefully.
  • Be careful around sharp and hot items.
  • Don’t forget to clean up the kitchen afterwards!

Here’s a video about one of the rules – Measure Carefully. Enjoy!

Kitchen skills – Measure up. Did you know there’s a difference between liquid and dry measuring cups? For liquid, use a clear measuring cup, then read the measure from eye level. For dry ingredients, fill your measuring cup, then use the flat side of a butter knife to level it off. Perfect!
