KITCHEN KIDS COOKING SCHOOL-Week 1

June 7 @ 10:00 am - June 11 @ 12:30 pm

$250.00

CALLING KITCHEN KIDS

A summer program for youth 8-12 years of age

An exciting series of cooking classes has been developed with our youth in mind.  You will not only learn table etiquette and working your way around a kitchen, but, at the end of the class week, be able to set a proper table and prepare a healthy meal that your family – and YOU – would enjoy eating!

(Think – Tater Tots from scratch; Mac and Cheese not in a box; homemade ice cream; homemade pasta…)

Sign up for 1 or more weeks of classes as each week boasts a different menu. Details for each session:

  • Takes place Monday, June 7-Thursday, June 10 from 10:00-12:30 and includes the lunch you prepare that day (THIS IS A DROP-OFF PROGRAM)
  • Has a MINIMUM OF 6 students and a maximum of 8 students
    • Without a minimum of 6 students met per session, clients will be fully refunded for class session.
  • Cost of $250 per week
    • Due to the nature of the class and planning ahead and purchasing food items, refunds will only be given for the week’s session if notified 72 hours in advance AND the spot can be filled with another student. You are welcome to send someone in your place to attend the class that you’ve purchased.  Please choose your week(s) carefully!

During the course of the week, students will

  • Learn to properly set a table
  • Learn kitchen and dining etiquette
  • Learn proper knife skills

Marjorie is a Private Chef, caterer, nutritionist, culinary educator and award-winning chef.  Marjorie has won over 40 culinary awards from major food companies.  She worked as a food stylist for the Food Network. She has a catering company called Fun Food Catering.  Her website is funfoodcatering.com.

The Hackett House is delighted to bring these two chefs who will teach our young chefs how to go from processed food to real food.  In other words, I can open a box of mac and cheese OR I can make a much more nutritious version from scratch.
