Class Description

Learn life skills the fun way! In this class, we learn cooking (something other than ramen), budgeting, and basic etiquette, while learning a little (or more) about nutrition, food hygiene, and of course, we’ll learn to bake a cake like a pro.

What We Provide:

~ an interactive virtual class via Zoom (after registering, we will email Zoom links and passwords for attending classes).

~ a list of simple ingredients and equipment emailed in advance of class

~ recipes via PDF

~ class notes regarding any help students will need from parents (young ones might need help with turning on the oven, slicing, etc.) and advance prep on ingredients (e.g. pre-baking a potato)

What We’ll Need from You

~ supervision, as appropriate. For example, your seven-year-old should not be left unattended in the kitchen with a sharp knife!

~ ingredients and equipment. We promise to keep them simple.
