Teens Take On Fall: Pumpkin

This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

It’s Fall! It’s sweater weather! It’s time to make way for the seasonal rise of the notorious pumpkin spice latte! Oh and it’s the start of 18 Reasons’ Fall Teen classes! This kick-off class is packed with the best pumpkin desserts that the season has to offer. We’ll make a classic pumpkin pie, bake off a pumpkin cake and roll it up with a cream cheese filling, and end the class with a pumpkin spice latte base to fill your days with #PSLs without having to leave the house!

Born and raised in Colorado, Elise Hayashi grew up in a family where knowing how to use a paring knife was more important than riding a bicycle. This sparked her passion for food and cooking at an early age, and she enthusiastically relocated to the Bay Area to study nutrition science at UC Berkeley. Outside of the classroom, Elise helped implement childhood obesity and exercise research, and worked as a pastry assistant to fill her free time with galettes and mousses. She also broadened her experience with food by studying and cooking her way through the Mediterranean diet in Italy, and working on an organic farm in Japan. Now, she is excited to merge her gastronomic backgrounds to share her love of food with the 18 Reasons community. During the rare moments when she is not eating, Elise can be found trying out new sports, playing and listening to live music, or wandering the aisles of grocery stores and farmers' markets.
