From time to time, I take Dindin out on field trips, which we consider exposure trips. These are places or events where Dindin can learn about the real world and see how things are done. She may not completely understand everything that is going on but we feel that her exposure to these things broaden her horizon.
Her recent jaunt was at the cooking demo by Sabrina Artadi of Sabrina’s Kitchen held at the Hospitality Management Building of West Negros University here in Bacolod City.
Dindin was very excited while preparing for this outing. At first, she thought that she was the one giving the demo so she practiced her opening lines: “Bon jou mes amis. Welcome to the cooking show by Chef Dindin!” But then I told her that it wasn’t her show and we were just going to watch Chef Sabrina. Thankfully, she agreed and was still happy to go.
Seated at the back because we were late, Dindin listened intently to Ms. Artadi as she explained the dishes she was preparing. For all I know, I think Dindin was just star struck because the chef is really pretty. There was one point that Ms. Artadi acknowledged her because Dindin actually waved to her! LOL
Since we were a small group, we were allowed to taste the dishes that she prepared and Dindin tasted them all–except for the vegetable salad. She was game with the broccoli, the black rice, the chicken and the beef. She even wanted to try the bar preparations but I told her to skip it because of the alcohol content. But I wouldn’t be surprised if she will be eventually trying out wine kits and becoming a sommelier.
Dindin was just very happy that she was able to attend the cooking show. And I’m glad that she was well-behaved then. 😀 I believe that it was a memorable time for her.
