The Kids' Table


hands-on cooking fun IN your hood


The Kids' Table is bringing the cooking fun to a location near you with POP UP cooking class throughout the city! In our hands-on classes, tots get to chop, measure and mix their way to a different delicious dish each week. Kids have fun, learn new skills, enjoy yummy food, and discover that cooking is fun and "real food" is really good!

Scroll down for registration & menus. Registration is by session only in advance. If there is still space once the session starts, we’ll open up a single day option.
