Teens Take On Fall: Spices

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

Are you ready for some spice and everything nice? Today we’ll fill your home with the warm and comforting smells of cinnamon, clove, and ginger as we simmer a mulled cider on the back burner, and open our arms to embrace apples into our kitchens. If the tantalizing scent of cider isn’t enough, we’ll fill the oven with a spiced apple cake, and add a gingersnap dough to the mix that will gracefully find its way to the top of that apple cake.


Mulled Cider

Apple Crumb Cake

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.
