Big Kids' Classes

The kitchen is under construction!! We are currently not scheduling classes,  camps or parties as we make way for an updated kitchen for classes! We will resume classes in fall 2016.

2015 Thursdays
  January 8 - February 26
(8 weeks)
Kindergarten - 14 years
4:30-6:00 pm

Please join me this winter as I offer an 8-week cooking class for kindergarten - age 14. Each class will be 90 minutes long, and very hands-on. The students will make a complete recipe, start-to-finish. They will sample what they have cooked, and will also get to take some home for their family to enjoy! 

Classes will be designed to teach recipe planning, how to select a balanced meal, and the basics of measuring and cooking techniques. Children will receive a recipe book of all recipes from class, designed in an easy-to-follow format. We will focus on seasonal foods while enjoying delicious, fresh ingredients from our family's local farm share!

Winter Lesson Plan:
It’s no secret that kids love all things Carb. Crackers, muffins, breads, pasta...don’t you wish it were so simple to get them to eat their veggies? During the first four weeks of this class, we will be making delicious muffins, biscuits and other fun-to-make kid pleasers. The trick? We’ll be sneaking a few vitamin-packed veggies into each recipe! 

During the second four weeks, we will go on a tour of the world as we make healthy and delicious recipes that span the globe. From Mexican Bean Burgers to the Middle Eastern favorite Falafel, we’ll be exploring different cultures through our tastebuds.

Whether cooking classes are entirely new to your family, or you wish to continue to build on previous CKK classes, we would love for your kids to be a part of this fun 8-week class. 
We have a blast in these classes, with a very hands-on approach.

Feedback from Past Participants


Thank you again for showing the girls such a great time!  They really did have so much fun (even the ones that were skeptical).

I wanted to share with you and all of the moms that the hot discussion in the car on the way back was who would be doing what when they open their own restaurant (that they will run out of someone's back yard on weekends or during the summer). 

They were dead serious--to the point that there was some serious (good-natured) arguing about the details, where the funding would come from, and that the younger siblings would have to help since they realized it would take more than 5 people to get this restaurant up and running. 

It was stressing me out a bit, but I was glad to see them making the kinds of plans that do set wheels in motion--which will help in all of their future careers!  We will be sure to invite you to any restaurant grand opening when it happens.

Thanks again!
