Tickets are not available as this class has passed.

In our cooking series, children learn to cook by actually preparing the menu items themselves each day, not by watching someone else cook. When children cook the food themselves, they are more likely to try what they have prepared. Throughout the series, we will practice knife skills, working with savory and sweet doughs, searing proteins, and baking. At the end of each class, the kids enjoy the food they have prepared.

SCHEDULE: Wednesdays: 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. (2 hour class)
DATES: September 20, 27, October 4, 11, 18
PRICING: $310 for 5 weeks

We believe in learning by doing. In our cooking series, all classes are hands-on, and children eat what they each make.
We will teach the kids the following as appropriate for the menu being cooked each week:
1. how to be safe in the kitchen, including hand and workspace sanitizing, proper food handling including how to wash food, and knife safety; temperature danger zone;
2. how to read and follow a recipe;
3. how to arrange the kitchen workplace so that all the items needed for the recipe are located and placed nearby;
4. how to accurately measure ingredients using measuring cups and measuring spoons and about measuring equivalents;
5. how to bake/roast, stew/braise, stir-fry, make sauces and soups;
6. the difference between whole and processed foods and how each affects health;
7. the importance of sustainability and eating what is in season;
8. how to reuse or repurpose ingredients already on hand; and
9. how to clean up the kitchen.
