Over the six week program children learn essential cooking and kitchen safety skills while preparing delicious meals and having lots of fun.
The techniques that the children learn become more complex as the program progresses. It culminates in an end-of-term celebration 'feast' made by the children and shared with invited family.
Every week the students make healthy and age-appropriate dishes that they take home at the end of the class. They work in small groups to make friends and develop teamwork skills.
Above all else they have a great time in a well-supervised, safe, and encouraging environment. The classes are suitable for ages 7-12.
