I have had a lot of positive feedback and it will be a lot of fun. Read all about it here!
This class consists of 4 mornings from 8:30 – noon, Monday to Thursday. There will be a maximum of 6 children in the class. The first day will be totally planned by myself but in this first day we will, as a group, plan the ‘menu’ for the remaining three days. The children will have input into what kinds of things they would like to cook.
My idea is that we will make a nutritious breakfast when they arrive and then work on a fun and interesting yet nutritious lunch. I have a degree in home economics and education, have my Food Safe certificate and love cooking. My goal is to have as many people making good food at home with local ingredients, as possible.
In addition to learning some new cooking skills, I will teach the children how to properly set a table and will touch on table etiquette, food safety, and nutrition.
I have a brand new kitchen with wonderful appliances. The children will be expected to do clean-up but the bulk of the dishes will be put in the dishwasher. As with any cooking class, it is mainly about the food and food preparation. For children ages 8 - 12 years.
Dates for the classes: July 25 – 28 and August 8 – 11
Cost: $140 per child each session
Optional add on: $20 + cost of fruit for a field trip to a U-Pick on the following Saturday or Sunday to pick fruits in season. No need to sign up in advance for this. It can be a last minute decision. We will probably go to Treasure Valley Farms near Cadillac.
