Cooking for Kids

Come out and join "Cooking for Kids". This program is a hands-on class what allows children to gain confidence in the kitchen, try new food, and most of all, inspire kitchen creativity. Kids will work together to make recipes from scratch, learn about the different uses of utensils and how to properly measure ingredients, as well as how to follow proper kitchen safety and hygiene procedures. At the end of each class, children will be able to sample the dishes they have made. On the final class, each child will be given a cookbook with all of the recipes made to take home. Help foster the inner chef in your child!
