SEPTEMBER

 

Saturday, September 14th | 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Kids in the Kitchen: Beginning Baking- SOLD OUT!!

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. If you missed out on the first few Summer baking classes, here’s another round of our most popular kids’ class: beginning baking. Many kids have a sweet tooth (or teeth!), and baking is a great way to learn reading comprehension, math, science and more in the kitchen. In this fun class, we’ll learn how to make some kid friendly baking classics. You’ll make your own cheese pizzas, brownie bites, blueberry scones and pumpkin muffins. You’ll learn all about ingredients and what many different baking terms like “cream”, “whip” and “sift” mean. This class is good for vegetarian kids, but cannot be gluten free or vegan. Classes are suitable for kids ages 5-12, and are drop off classes- kids only please! Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Please note that this class is longer than our usual Saturday classes, and that a main meal will not be served, though there will theoretically be plenty of treats to take home. Pre-registration is required.

Cost: $20 per kid           

Saturday, September 21st | 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Kids in the Kitchen: Cupcake Artists- SOLD OUT!

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Cupcakes are yummy and super fun to make, and even more fun to decorate. In this class, we’re going to whip up some treats that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Chef Ani will show you how to make buttercream frosting and turn it all sorts of different colors, how to use cookies, marzipan and candy to decorate, and how to use different piping techniques to make unicorn cupcakes, beehive cupcakes, cheeseburger cupcakes and sunflower cupcakes. This class is good for vegetarian kids, but cannot be gluten free or vegan. Classes are suitable for kids ages 5-12, and are drop off classes- kids only please! Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Please note that this class is a little later than our usual Saturday classes, and that a main meal will not be served, though there will theoretically be plenty of treats to take home. Pre-registration is required.

Cost: $15 per kid
