Easy & Colorful
Our recipes tend to be easy and colorful using mostly fresh ingredients. We also have fun names for our recipes, too, because we find “Super-Power Smoothie” or “Godzilla Veggie Bites” encourage students to try new foods. Children are inspired to share their cooking experiences when they return home. We provide the recipes, cooking tips and talking points to create recipe sharing and learning at home easier and more fun. And because we want every student to love the food, our focus is on “slightly healthier” balanced recipes, with treats here and there. That’s why we try to abide by the motto:
“Everything in moderation, even moderation.”
We keep things food-safe: we are a nut-free establishment and we can accommodate most food allergies.
We also teach basic table manners and dining etiquette, and of course, clean-up skills.
WHAT DO WE TEACH?
Culinary skills are at the core of our program. We teach students how to chop, dice, peel, slice, wash, strain, core, bake, toast, whisk, fold and mix. We also teach students how to read recipes and how to measure ingredients. We make it so that recipe preparation (and clean-up) is easy and fun!
Delicious and healthy recipes are a key ingredient of every cooking class. Our instructors discuss nutrition in a really fun way so that students get excited about nutrition and healthy food overall. The goal is also to encourage students to talk it up at home and share key nutrition facts and food nuggets they learned in class.
Culture of Food
Cultural awareness is an important part of our program. Our schools are ethnically diverse so we carefully select recipes that expose students to the foods and dishes of other countries. Our instructors share interesting facts about world cuisine and encourage students to share their own cultural food experiences with classmates.
