The Kids' Table

Kids Can Cook

weekly classes for ages 4-10


Kids Can Cook is our original cooking class series - an ongoing foodie adventure! Kids cook up an exciting new recipe each week (everything from Build-Your-Own Pizza to Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes to Kale Caesar Salad). You (and they) will marvel at how much they are capable of in the kitchen. Kids learn valuable culinary skills and new recipes, enjoy a fun and communal activity, and are inspired to expand their taste buds to discover that "real food" can be really good!

For ages 4-10. Schedule, menus and registration links are below. Join us every week or register for a drop-in. Skills build naturally with varying recipes & practice, so the more often you can come, the better!
