Basic cooking knowledge is solid grounding for a self-sufficient life! So we offer junior version of our adult beginner cooking series designed for teens ages 13-15.
Students cover everything from basic knife skills to the techniques for preparing simple, real food. These classes are not just about recipes; they also focus on problem-solving, time management, everyday arithmetic, and applied creativity.
Each week, students will prepare a three-course meal that they can prepare at home with minimal adult supervision. The focus of this series are French bistro menus – one of our favorite cuisines!
Classes meet once a month on Thursday afternoons from 4:30-6:30 PM beginning September 14. Students receive a certificate of completion at the end of the four-week capsule.
Take the entire series, or individual classes. For more details and an application form, please email or call.
