Kids Can Cook


Class focuses on foundational kitchen techniques appropriate to 8-12 year olds.  Kids can cook using vegetables! and fruits! and baking!   Good cooking is FUN. This hands-on experience will help them value the good foods over the junk foods.  The focus is on uncomplicated preparations of good, fresh, healthful ingredients and in trying to engage all our senses as we cook together.  We will talk about sustainability, conserving, composting, gardens, and eating together with our families.  Modeled on the works of Alice Waters and Jamie Oliver. 

Reviews from March break classes:  

" Thank you, Jill.  I cook with the kids, but your friendly and respectful attitude towards the kids really made them feel empowered and excited about cooking!  Can't wait for the next class." 
"The class was great.  I would love to do it again.  I had fun making everything we made."  

Held during school vacation week in April.  They will be making their own lunch each day. Classes size is  limited to 5,  so sign up early.  Two sessions, 3 hours each day.
