My second class for St. Paul community ed was last night and it was wonderful!
I had 4 students, 3 of them representing 3 generations of one family. Fantastic! I had 2 ladies and 2 men. I'm guessing the 2 ladies were probably older than me, early-mid 40's. The two men were the grandfather and grandson of the group. Poppa around 60ish and the grandson approximately 10. They were wonderful students! I demonstrated the first piece and the GRANDSON did the second. He rolled it out perfectly, lifted it onto the griddle and baked it like a pro. It was perfect!!!
My best compliment was when we were eating the finished lefse and the grandfather took his first bite and sighed "Just like I remember".
We were finished by 8:30 and I did get a recommendation to add flat brot to the menu, which I am considering and it was certainly possible to do with 4-5 people, but might be difficult with 10. I'll have some time to experiment before my next class in February.
The grandfather was also a knitter so we chatted about his stuff and I showed him the stockings that I had with me. He learned to knit to make chemo caps for friends and charity. I meet such wonderful people teaching this class.
