South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club Celebrated a Successful Season


This is the last kitchen for the season before the break for summer. The South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club celebrated a successful season with great leadership from Michelle and Stella. We also want to thank our volunteer, Rula.

Mila made a Filipino dessert called Biko. It’s made with sweet rice, coconut milk and condensed milk. What a sweet ending to a meal. Thank you, Mila.

Michelle came up with a cooking challenge for the participants to do in summer. The participants were given a random pick of grain and a recipe with the grain to try. The participants will give feedback of their challenge when they meet again in Fall. The grains include spelt, split peas, barley and lentils.

We also harvested some kale and garlic scape from the senior garden. The yield of the garden is to be donated to the food bank.

Michelle demonstrated an effective way to dry kale. Kale is a hardy green and drying by rolling the kale tightly with tea towel will not bruise the kale.

Michelle made kale chips and roasted the tender part of the garlic scape in the oven. Roasted garlic scape is a favourite in Michelle’s family and her kids cannot get enough of them.

The recipes for the sandwiches, salad dressing and strawberries dessert will be posted in the next few days.

  1. Hi there! Very nice post, loved the pictures. Speaking of Ranch dressing and homemade salad, could you post here how to make that dressing? I miss it so much! I live in Brazil and unfortunately we don’t have it…😦 And if you don’t mind me asking, could you visit my blog and read one of my posts in English? I started it a few days ago and I need some helpful hints or just thoughts on it.

    • Hi Thaynara, the Ranch recipe will be posted in a couple of days. I could not open your blog; perhaps due to the internet connection which is slower where I’m having my vacation now.
