Offered on Fridays, this class is about more than baking delicious desserts. It’s about family, honoring those who’ve come before us, and having fun in the kitchen! It’s also probably going to make you cry (in a good way), so you may want to grab some tissues.
Dave Yeager (Music and English Teacher, and Extracurricular Aide) loved baking with his mom, Kathy. Before he left for college, she gave him a handwritten book with all of her dessert recipes, knowing he’d miss her baking. Over the last 20 years, he’s kept it safe, used it countless times, added some recipes of his own… and is excited to teach your kids the recipes that made his childhood the most delicious and memorable.
“What makes this extra special to share with our students, is that my mom was still alive while I was planning this class. When we’re listening to the same music she used to play in our kitchen when I was a kid -- The Moody Blues, Sam Cooke, Donovan -- I can feel her in the FAIS kitchen, watching us dance around and have a great time.”
Students learn a new recipe each week, baking half of it at school, and bringing the other half home to bake with their family. At the end of the class, students will also receive a copy of the cookbook with a picture of Dave and his mom as a thank you. Our thanks to Dave for sharing this touching story and for sharing these precious recipes with our community.
