Holidays and Comfort Foods – After School Cooking & Baking for Children 8 – 13 years old
December 20, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Monday, repeating until December 20, 2021
Every Monday from 4 – 6pm for
5 Weeks – November 22nd, 29th, December 6th, 13th & 20th
Every week we’ll work together to make and bake 3 – 5 delicious recipes from scratch. In November we’ll focus on learning to make delicious soup, stew, casseroles and bread and in December we’ll make and bake gifts from the kitchen for the holidays. As we work through recipes, your child will learn, hands on, the fundamentals of cooking and baking while gaining confidence and eventually independence in the kitchen. As we cook and bake we emphasize organizing, prioritizing and planning, in addition to thinking critically & creatively. Your child will learn to substitute ingredients and how to make recipes their own unique creations. We teach, “clean as you go” and how to clean up the kitchen after we’ve made our recipes too. And then, we eat everything we make and discuss our finished products as well as any challenges we encountered while making a recipe to improve on it the next time. Our cooking classes are lively, fun and action packed. We teach knife skills, equipment use and care and countless kitchen tips, tricks and lessons that will last your child a lifetime. Recipes will be chosen each week based on the group’s tastes and what they want to learn to make. For the last class we hold a friendly competition where the class breaks into teams and uses their skills and creativity to make, bake or cook a winning creation. It’s so much fun!
