2019-2020 After-School Enrichment


Course description:  Your student is invited to enjoy 7-9 afternoons of chopping, slicing, measuring and stirring to create several yummy dishes with professional chefs and skilled volunteers. Your child will come home excited about preparing nutritious, delicious, and affordable meals made from real food. Each week they will work with a small group to prepare a meal and then sit down to enjoy it together as a community with tablecloths and napkins.


If you would like us to teach at your child's school (including homeschool groups) please contact us!
