At the Farm Cooking School, it's our belief that kids who cook, learn to love great food and eat their vegetables too! We love having kids in all of our classes and they are welcome to join any class alone, or with an adult based on their experience and comfort level. We also offer a variety of kids only classes, events, and camps!
We regularly feature kids cooking classes that are designed with 6-14 year olds in mind. Classes are suitable for kids who have never cooked, as well as future chefs! The feedback we get is awesome and the kids always have a great time! We are not sure who has more fun however, us or them! Classes cover culinary basics, regional and world cuisines, and specific techniques. Classes are taught by Chef Shelley Wiseman and some of our favorite guest instructors! Please see our calendar and upcoming classes for the next kids cooking course.
