Let's cook together!
We understand the challenges in bringing children into the fold while pulling a meal together. But we also believe that with the right support and sense of community in taking on this challenge, we can bring children closer to the food they eat and to those with whom they share it. We invite children and their caregivers to join us in this exciting endeavor - let us support you.
This class will team up parents and kids to practice essential cooking and cutting skills and to make Korean Bibimbap-inspired rice bowls. The skills learned in this class will enhance weeknight cooking by empowering with skills and confidence and inspiring countless creative dinners. Along the way, we'll provide tips and ideas for getting parents and kids cooking together in the kitchen.
The class will begin with a parent and child side-by-side primer on knife skills and safety.
In the second part of class, adults will continue with more knife skills training (including mise en place techniques and knife care) while kids learn about Korean cuisine and roll up their sleeves on a variety of prep projects. Our parent and child teams will rejoin at the end of class to assemble their rice bowls. To close, we'll all eat together and share our experiences and what we learned.
