Children begin their exploration of the kitchen with a hands-on approach to ingredients and techniques, and through culinary-related crafts. Children will practice age-appropriate techniques in cutting, shaping, assembling, stirring, squeezing, skewering, straining, kneading, rolling, baking, boiling, and of course, tasting.
Every session involves learning new culinary skills while creating and cooking a healthy, delicious dish with Karen Montgomery who is a skilled chef and graduate from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco.

What is a kid-friendly recipe? To me, it’s a simple ingredients list, or limited number of cooking methods required. Tasting new flavors and getting creative is something we get a kick out of. Please use your own best judgment when cooking with your own children at home, and don’t be afraid to let them do some of the difficult parts!
Very Important: Cooking with kids CAN get a bit messy. It’s okay!! Take a deep breathe. Smile. And remember, you can always clean up later. Also, they WILL screw up. Enjoy it! And assuming you can still capture their attention afterwards, teaching your child to help clean up afterwards is an important learning experience.
If you have questions about a posted recipe, cooking-method, technique, or would like to see something in particular, please don’t hesitate to ask. It’s my favorite subject!
