Let Your Children Do the Cooking

In our cooking series, children learn to cook by actually preparing the menu items themselves each day, not by watching someone else cook while explaining how the recipe is prepared. When children cook food, they are more likely to try what they have prepared. At the end of each class, the kids enjoy the food they have prepared.

AGES: The series is intended for kids ages 7 and above. Please note: in order to ensure the maximum benefit for all children, your child must be capable of following directions and cooperating with others in the class.

CLASS SIZE LIMIT: Due to the level of individualized attention, we can accommodate a maximum of 18 children per session.

Morning series

Mondays, 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Whether your child is a novice or has experience in the kitchen, this series will help him/her advance in culinary skills and confidence. Concepts of math and science are woven into the cooking instruction.

Price: $320 for entire 6 week series

Afternoon series

Mondays, 3:30 -5:30 p.m.

This series is intended for children ages 7 or older. We teach basic culinary skills to the novice cook and provide those with some culinary experience with opportunities to advance their skills and increase their confidence.

Price: $320 for entire 6 week series

Children’s Cooking Class Testimonials

What People Are Saying

“My Daughter Taught Me New Recipes”

“My 10-year-old daughter made banana pudding, chicken pot pie and cornbread—all from scratch! (I have never made pudding that didn’t start with a box.) We had her food for dinner, and it was amazing. She was so proud of what she made and realized the amount of time that goes into cooking. She brought home the recipes, so now I can make pudding from scratch too.”

Michelle

“My Son Never Wants to Leave This Camp”

This is an amazing school. The summer camp is absolutely incredible…great teachers, great facility, all around GREAT!!! My son has loved going to camp every morning and doesn’t want to leave in the afternoons!

Denise

“A Worry-Free Birthday Bash”

My daughter celebrated her 10th birthday here with 17 friends! I was worried about having so many guests, but Terri and her team were amazing! Everything was organized, relaxed, and super fun. The girls had a blast and all came home excited to cook for their families. I was blown away to watch 18 kids happily cook and then eat together!”

Allyson

“My Son is ‘resident chef’ at his college dorm”

“Thank you for the skills your staff taught my son in summer camp. He started college this fall and has become the “resident chef” for his dorm mates. He loved the class at the time but I had no idea he would retain and use that knowledge.

Keep up the good work!”
