Youth Food Project: Cookie Decorating

The Youth Project had its last session for 2014 last Thursday and we learned how to decorate cookies! As an intern/mentor, I assist in teaching the youth but for that evening we had a special guest (Monika Paradi) who took the stage and showed us some of her decorating techniques--I love it when I get to be a student too!

I am surely going to miss the Inn for the next few weeks! As I keep telling people about my experience there, I love how we don't just focus on the end product but also (especially!) on the process of cooking/baking--the gathering of community and building of relationships. It's definitely something I want to keep doing in the future, and possibly share to the rest of the world.
