Let’s travel back in time to a simpler and easier period in America… A time when ground beef cost 89 cents for 3 pounds! Onions were 15 cents for 5 pounds and coffee was 15 cents per pound.The menus at a 50’s Diner were always there to give hungry customers comfort food that always made one think of Moms Cooking. Items like Country Fried Steak with Herb Gravy, Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits, Apple Pie, Patty Melts, Loaded Potato Skins and Banana Cream Pie (hungry yet?) have long been dazzling taste buds of Diners across the Nation and this summer, a new generation of kids 7-17, can experience the great tastes of the 1950’s in the Cooking Camp’s ( fun and creative hands on Cooking class series called the 50’s Diner.Teens and Kids will be able to bring home creations like Cheese Dogs with from scratch Chili, Country Cole Slaw and Mini Sweet Potato Pies all taught to them by Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Pasadena trained Chefs.The brainchild of Executive Chef Chris Allen, also a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Pasadena in 2001 began the Cooking Camp to serve Pasadena kids in 2005. “I’m so happy we are heading into our 8th year teaching the Teenagers and Kids of Pasadena the art of Cooking. I feel it is these creative courses that I try to create an learning environment that can give the whole family something that spans generations and spawns conversation that everyone can be a part of. Like talking about the blend of creaminess and crunchiness in perfectly cooked Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy!!”“The 50’s style Diner is fading away slowly and this is my way to try to make sure that the next generations can appreciate the delicious taste of the 50’s Diner. I think there is no better way to make it a long lasting memory then to let Kids make it themselves and be actively involved in creating something delicious and give them a link to a time long ago and have something they can share memories with their Parents and Grandparents.”So help keep the memories of the 50’s Diner alive with your Teens and Kids where they can learn about a generation gone by and experience it via the delicious food selections of the 50’s Diner.For more information visit Summer Art Academy’s Cooking Camp at Make a comment EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Business News Top of the News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenacenter_img HerbeautyThat Sale Made Kim A BillionaireHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat Is It That Actually Makes French Women So Admirable?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty15 things only girls who live life to the maximum understandHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Hollywood Divas Who Fell In Love With WomenHerbeautyHerbeauty Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Hughton: Holt will get over penalty miss

first_imgNorwich boss Chris Hughton does not believe Grant Holt’s late penalty miss in Saturday’s goalless draw at home to Southampton will play on his mind. Holt saw an injury-time spot-kick saved by Saints goalkeeper Artur Boruc at the end of a game bereft of chances and quality. A victory would have taken the Canaries into the top half of the Barclays Premier League table but Hughton feels his captain will shake off the miss. “He’ll be disappointed because he wants to score goals and it’s one less opportunity,” Hughton said. “But he has been around too long and taken – and missed – too many penalties to let it affect him.” Press Associationcenter_img There was a long period between the initial awarding of the penalty and Holt missing from the spot, as referee Mark Clattenburg consulted with his assistant and also dealt with a number of Southampton protests, and Hughton reckons the waiting period could have helped heap more pressure on to Holt. “It can do but I think, once you are there, it’s down to the goalkeeper who has got to save it,” he said. “If the goalkeeper guesses the right way then he has got a chance. “He guessed the right way and it probably wasn’t one that was heading right for the corner. If it is right in the corner, it is more difficult but he gave him a chance to save it.” Only bottom club QPR have scored less league goals than Hughton’s side this season, a matter that the former Newcastle manager looked to address with the double signing of Luciano Becchio and Kei Kamara in the January transfer window. But goals continue to be hard to come by for the Canaries, with Hughton admitting it is an issue everyone is looking to rectify. “I am not going to say that we have been brilliant in front of goal because the stats haven’t showed that,” he said. “But we are working hard on it. In the last two games, I have played two up front to try to get those opportunities and against Everton we scored twice. “We were up against a good side – they have shown that in their last couple of games, even their last couple of away games, playing well at Old Trafford and at Newcastle.” last_img read more
