Taste Memory chef makes pretzels with kids

February 23, 2008

Behind every thriving and joyful child is a loving, caring adult.

On Feb. 22, 2008, Inga Brunnett, founder and creative force behind Taste Memory,  was that loving and caring adult who worked with children making homemade pretzels in the modest sanctuary basement of Triumph the Church in East Jacksonville, Florida.

The culinary expert dusted the Formica countertop with flour, rolled out the dough
and showed children how to twist it into both classic and innovative pretzel shapes,
then brush an egg wash over the top and pop it in the oven for a few minutes.

The smell of baking bread wafted through the church basement, where
children drop in every day for tutoring, snacks and mentoring.

When the pretzels were golden, the children then were able to eat the fruits
of their own labor.

What a great way to end a busy week in East Jacksonville.

And a good way for children to get away from the gunfire and terror of the streets
in the neighborhood, where yellow crime-scene tape is a regular part
of the landscape.
