College Student Cooking Demo

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Here are great presentations for those who are limited in skills, equipment, time and money - college students. It can also apply to people on a limited income, seniors or busy parents.

Subscriber Shauna Schultz woked on a cooking demonstration for college students, who often have limited time, limited cooking equipment and limited skills in their kitchen.

She used the article, 5 Mistakes of Cooking Demos, found in your member handout library under COOKING plus COOKING DEMOS plus our additional tips:

Food safety - visualize and list every step from start to finish How will you or your assistants wash hands, keep proper temps and not have cross contamination with the cutting boards and utensils? How will you serve quickly at proper temps?

And do you need a microphone?

It is good to practice the recipe at home - never make it the first time for an audience.

Premeasure so it goes fast.

Prepare one. If it takes a long time to cook or bake have a finished one ready to show after you demo and you can use it for tasting.

Getting the audience to help helps you and is more fun!
