The Kids' Table

Tots Can Cook

weekly classes for ages 2-4


Yes, your tot can cook! With the guidance of our engaging instructors, our carefully selected cooking tools and a little help from you, kids get to chop, grate, mix and roll their way to delicious dishes (everything from Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes to Kale Caesar Salad). Tots learn and practice cooking skills, engage all their senses, explore new flavors, enhance motor skills, experience community, and enjoy their tasty culinary creations. And if you have a picky tot, you may be amazed at what they’ll eat when they make it themselves!

For ages 2-4 (parent/caregiver participation required). 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!
