It's spring, and graduations are more plentiful than crumbs in a donut shop. And here at The Sporkful, we've got some major life milestones, too.
It's time to induct some new presidents into the Sporkful Junior Eaters Society (SJES) -- where all members are presidents. To commemorate this great honor, our five new presidents will receive certificates of recognition, signed by me (free of charge)!
If your child wants to be a president of the Sporkful Junior Eaters Society, just email a picture or scan of a drawing, video, or any sort of visual evidence of his/her passion for eating and/or The Sporkful.
Meet 10-year-old Alex from Concord, CA. Check out his expert mussels eating technique:
At the ripe old age of 12, Kimberly from Commerce, MI, has already mastered pho and octopus. Here she is feasting on a little manchego and prosciutto:
Six-year-old Sasha from Boonton, NJ, is into everything from tacos (below) to Indian and Korean cooking. Sasha's father Bradley notes that his son recently saved Family Taco Night -- and created a new family favorite ("broccoli tacos") -- by adding broccoli to some overly spicy ground beef. We commend your bold and delicious move, Sasha!
Just six months old, Kit from Leechburg, PA, is one of the youngest presidents of SJES. No doubt there are many good meals ahead for Kit -- shown below savoring a recent meal:
And there's another prodigy among our new inductees: four-month-old Brooke from Columbia, MD, who just started eating solid food. As her father Marc rightly notes, "When was the last time you enjoyed food so much you let it cascade down your lips, chin, neck, and shirt with carefree abandon?"
Eaters, keep young Brooke in mind the next time you're savoring a particularly good meal.
