THYME to TURNIP the BEET on WHAT KIDS EAT™
BUDDING MaSTIR CHEF AFTER-SCHOOL COOKING CLASSES at HIGHLAND PARK MONTESSORI SCHOOL.
Let your children release their inner masterchef!
We’re whipping up some fresh and tasty content for your budding kid chef this season by focusing on 3 super fun COOL-inary themes in our after-school cooking class sessions:
FUN-da-mentals: In our first class, your kid chef will develop confidence in the kitchen by learning the FUN-da-mentals: measuring, mixing, mashing, blending, and more! These skills set the foundation for cooking and baking, and students will learn these skills while creating a delicious sweet treat with a nutritious twist!
Kitchen Tools PhD: In subsequent classes, students will move on to earning their Kitchen Tools PhD! Recipes provide tons of engaging and tactile learning for kids to perfect their dicing, slicing, mincing, grating, folding and chopping with a wide variety of kitchen tools, from graters and immersion blenders to whisks, wooden spoons and kid-safe kitchen knives. These kitchen tools help develop and hone fine motor skills as kid chefs prepare savory recipes together with their peers.
COOL-inary Confidence: Students will also learn to “Cook Off the Cuff” for several classes and develop their COOL-inary Confidence with fun & flexible recipes that let them choose the vegetables, herbs, and spices from a bundle of colorful and tasty options. Each hands-on, real-world class will encourage your young chef to engage all of their 5 senses while expressing their own unique culinary creativity, trying new foods, and thinking about how each component will contribute to their own tasty recipe masterpiece in the end!
Our professional chef instructors guide kid chefs by providing safe, entertaining, hands-on learning throughout the class, but it’s the kid chefs who do the prepping and the cooking! Our class sessions are a BLAST for all ages! When kids get to touch the ingredients and have a hand in creating their food, they’re much more willing to try new foods.
We provide all of the tools, ingredients and instruction needed to cook up a delicious, healthy and hearty after-school snack each week. Our online recipe collection is included as well for loads of future family cooking fun at home! www.stickyfingerscooking.com/recipes
