Kids Kitchen 101

Summer is here! It’s getting hot and the kids are getting bored at home.  Do your children love to cook or want to learn how?  Sign them up for one, or all, of our three part series, Kids Kitchen 101.  In these classes your child will learn about food safety and sanitation and basic cooking skills and then help make some great meals that they can make at home.

The first class will be Monday, July 18, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon.  We will make a healthy chef salad, fresh vinaigrettes and home-made mac and cheese.

The second class will be Monday, August 1, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon.  Kids love to play in the dirt, so we will be making “dirt” pudding and ice cream cookie sandwiches. 

The third class in the series will be Monday, August 8, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon as well.  This will be an awesome pizza party, where they will learn to make fresh dough and prep their own toppings.

All of the classes will take place at The Girl Can Cook: Cooking Studio and Kitchen, located at 315 S. Main Street, in the beautiful Rose District of Broken Arrow, OK.

Cost for the classes are $40/child and  you can register here!  


Cooking Classes for Kids

Cooking classes for kids are a great way to teach them kitchen basics, and with summer coming, it’s time to get your grill on.  This weekend, I had the opportunity to teach grilling safety and techniques and grilling 101 for Champ (who received the class as a birthday present) and his good friend Peyton. We started by going over grill safety, food safety and sanitation, then we got the grill smokin!

The menu the boys cooked up consisted of grilled burgers with all of the fixings, grilled seasoned potato wedges and foil pack peach crisp,  topped with vanilla ice cream. Champ and Peyton really enjoyed prepping  and cooking the food for their moms.  There was even enough peach crisp for the rest of Peyton’s family too!  They did a great job until it came time to do the dishes, but we all agreed “If we cook it, you clean it!” lol. Thanks again Megan and Kelly.

So the next time you want a cool idea for your child’s birthday, consider a cooking class. Let them come up with the menu and let’s make a party of it!
