Ramaz After School Cooking Club - Umami! $535.60

Spring 2022 Tuesdays @ 3:15-4:30

Cooking All Six Flavors Using All Six Senses
There is a 6th flavor (beyond the traditional 5) that adds a certain depth and hard-to-describe-satisfying taste to a dish. The Japanese call this “umami”. It involves cooking with all the senses: taste, sight, smell, touch, hearing, taste and the sixth, intuitive sense. Each week we’ll cook a seasonal dish that has umami (super deliciousness).

This class is for Ramaz students only.


Dishes will include Pasta al Pesto, Risotto, Zoodles, Beet Feta Dip on homemade pan-roasted bread, Lemon Cake and more.

Icing on the Cake: Testimonials

I loved Ms. Nancy’s cooking class so much.! I have been in this cooking class for two years and I would love to sign up for another one. I tried a lot of new foods like winter squash, cardamom, Brussels sprouts and kale. My favorite salad was the kiwi, carrot, radish salad.
Not only did we cook and eat, we also did labs about food. We used rulers to measure the size of plants. We also explored stone fruits and their ripe season. Now in my house we have window boxes and I am growing cherry tomatoes and basil.
I learned that we can use a lot of different tools to cook, not just our hands and senses. We used safety knives, potato peelers and a carrot sharpener (I wonder if you could sharpen a pencil with it?) !!!
Because of this class I can help papi make dinner and I will try any new food at least once to see if I like it. Thank you, Ms. Nancy for making cooking fun and interesting and helping me be excited about food.
