Macon County 4-H Top Chef Cooking club was so excited to get back to cooking. The club hasn’t met in person since the COVID-19 Pandemic hit in March. Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 4-H Top Chef Club had their first in-person meeting since the pandemic began. Everyone had a great time while wearing their mask and staying socially distanced to ensure safety for all the 4-H’ers and leaders.

The club meeting was led by 4-H Top Chef Cooking Club Leader, Kathy Green. She trained the 4-H’ers on being COVID-19 safe while preparing food. Mrs. Kathy taught the 4-H’ers about after school snacks, food safety, and knife skills. 4-H’ers prepared their after school snack using the skills they learned. They made fruit fizz drinks and easy fruit salad which everyone enjoyed eating outside while social distancing.

The recipes came from NC EFNEP. (Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program.)
