Cooking Around The Globe

Wednesday
3:30pm-5:30pm

Grades 5-7

$365 (8 Classes include materials & food fees)

Instructor: Lisa Finn

Get your passports ready! Sharpen those knives and let’s get ready to journey around the world in 60 days!

Whether your child has little or no experience in the kitchen, our goal is to create a sense of independence and self-reliance. We will teach culinary recipes highlighting different flavor profiles from all over the world using ingredients and spices reflecting various cultural backgrounds. During our harvest season, we will have the unique opportunity to use our very own garden-fresh vegetables to show farm-to-table cooking. The experience of picking their own ingredients (when available) and then creating a meal to share at our big farm table has proven to be a win-win especially for those children less likely to 'try' new foods. We find students extremely excited and proud to try different foods if they actually participate in making it themselves!

Some examples of the dishes we may make are, Cornbread Tamale Pie, Thai Turkey Meatball Curry with Coconut Rice, Vietnamese Shrimp Rolls, Chicken with Tomatillo Sauce and Chocolate souffle…to name just a few!

All classes will be held in our new state-of-the-art kitchen where students will learn cooking techniques, such as basic knife skills, mise en place (recipe set-up), and kitchen etiquette. Most importantly, we want our students to learn how to create a delicious (and simple) meal they can then do on their own!

Instructors will notify families via email in case of severe/inclement weather.

Let the food journey begin!
