Here are some recent comments from instructors:

“I love spending time with kids and teaching them about different foods and cultures from all over the world. It is so exciting to see them try new flavors and experiment in the kitchen. Class time flies by and I find myself looking forward to seeing my little chefs again next week and being excited about new recipes we make. All ingredients and lesson plans are provided which makes it so easy for me and I find myself learning along with kids. I also love that I can pick which days I can work – flexibility is very important to me and I am so happy I can fit teaching in with my other commitments!”


-Elizabeth K., Instructor

“iCook is an awesome opportunity for kids to realize that cooking is accessible for everyone! Some kids come into the class with very limited understanding of how ingredients come together to make a dish, which they understand well by the end of the course. Others come in with so much cooking knowledge that I wonder if they've been on Chopped Junior! It's so much fun to see everyone come together for a shared (delicious) purpose. Everyone tries something they have never heard of, or maybe something they've been scared to try for a long time. Teaching is a delight. I can't believe I get paid to do this!”
