10 week program (currently Saturdays only) 9am to 11:30 am or 12pm to 2:30pm

In our Jr chefs and Teens cooking classes, our kids experience hands-on learning where they are elbow deep in all the basics of cooking. They are taught cooking techniques, knife skills and kitchen safety.

*We encourage kids to were proper shoes (sneakers), hear ties, and comfy clothing. Cell phones are not permitted during meal prep and production time, but can be used once hands-on time is over.

Our students are lovingly encouraged to try new flavors and tastes of foods, but it is up to them to do so. We use a lot of organic products and support out local farmers.  Although kids go wild with excitement as they discover the menu of the day, we encourage kids to help out with meal planning for the next class, and they are involved in creating menus, food prep and cooking, then at the end of it all they get to eat these yummy meals. Your child / children create awesome dishes ranging from appetizers, pastas, burgers, desserts and we also explore foods from different parts of the world, and are also involved in mystery baskets and cooking competitions that allows them to have an amazing culinary experience that they could later share with their families. They also receive a recipe card with all the dishes they created.

Our age groups are:

Children ages: 6 to 12

Teens Jr Chefs ages: 13 – 16

Teens and young adult 17 – 21

  

Allergies and Substitutions:

At the beginning of each class we ask parents to list all allergies their child / children might have. We also consider dietary preferences. All foods are done with each allergy in mind and we then substitute ingredients to ensure the safety of our students.

*Please note: we do not cook with pork

Currently classes are being held at the Clifton Boys and Girls Club. Classes are drop off only.
