Basic cooking knowledge is solid grounding for a self-sufficient life, so we offer the junior version of our adult beginner’s series for budding chefs for students 10+ years of age.

Students cover everything from basic knife skills to the techniques for preparing simple, real food. It’s not just about the recipes: this is about problem-solving, time management, everyday arithmetic, and applied creativity.

Each week, students will prepare a three-course meal that can be prepared with adult supervision in the kitchen; one class is devoted to after-school snacks.

Classes meet every Monday afternoon from 4:30-6:30 beginning May 16. (NOTE: There is no class on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30).  Students receive a packet of recipes 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 508-904-6589.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO CLASS ON MONDAY, MAY 30 (MEMORIAL DAY).
