Les Petits Chefs channel their inner Kandinsky with Adell Shneer

Such concentration for decorating cookies with Adell Shneer on eatlivetravelwrite.com(^^^ SUCH focus!)

The Petits Chefs were lucky to welcome Adell Shneer into the lab this week to talk to them about Wassily Kandinsky and show them how to decorate sugar cookies (channelling their inner Kandinsky!).  Adell is a popular guest chef at our school and this was her NINTH visit to to work with the boys in cooking club (and the first time we haven’t had repeat students work with her!).

This time, Adell chatted with the boys about Kandinsky (the inspiration for a lot of her own work) before a quick lesson about mixing colours and the colour wheel. The boys choose their own colours and they end up with a whole host of different ones to use…

    What gems!

    This is undoubtedly the first time I’ve heard the words “Kandinsky” and “cookie” in the same sentence. 🙂

    No wonder one of these didn’t make it home…too beautiful to part with. Though I think the new LPC crew needs to be reminded of the role Mr. Neil plays as their official taste-tester. 😉

      Actually there were 12 “example” cookies that we saved and sold the next day at a bake sale to raise money for Water Aid Canada 🙂

    What fun! Love these bright and colourful cookies.

    If any of those cookies had been signed ‘Kandinsky’ – it would probably have sold for a fortune. Lovely work and fun to boot.
