Cooking Classes for Kids

This program is perfect if your kids love to cook, but you are a little concerned about having them help in the kitchen. Or if you have kids who are comfortable in the kitchen, but want to add a little flair to their menus! Your young chefs will make delicious, scratch meals using age-appropriate tools and techniques. And they’ll sizzle with excitement at the recipes they’ll learn to make!

Culinary Chef Dustin Payne has four children of his own and is inspired to share his passion for cooking with kids today. Your children will learn important safety tips and gain the confidence they need to feel comfortable in the kitchen. They’ll have fun learning how to create everyday meals, plus treats for special occasions!

Kids ages 6 years and older will prepare the recipes themselves and sample what they’ve prepared. Ages 3-5 years may attend with an adult. These hands-on, interactive classes will stir up the desire to roast, bake, scramble, braise, and broil their way to culinary delight!

The recipes are simple enough for beginners in the kitchen, yet challenging enough for the creative cook. Chefs will be taught and encouraged to add their flavor and style to the recipes. It’s a fun way for kids to experiment in a safe environment.

COOKING BIRTHDAY PARTIES AVAILABLE.  CALL 571-283-9676 for more information.
