Newport Cooks After School Cooking & Baking: Our Favorite Recipes for Children 8 – 13 years old
September 21 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Does your child love to bake and/or cook or is interested in learning how? In our lively and fun hands-on classes we teach basic cooking and baking skills, try different and unusual foods and learn to navigate recipes from easy to complex. The first class we’ll make Ms Mary’s favorite recipes and for the next three classes we’ll make the student’s favorite recipes. The last class is a friendly cooking competition where students team up and combine the skills and recipes they’ve learned in the previous weeks. We teach organization skills and cleanliness in the kitchen, as well as proper knife skills and essential safety knowledge. Tasting everything we make, bake and cook and critically evaluating each recipe for how we might make it differently or better the next time is an important part of every class. Always emphasizing healthy and whole foods, we give children the tools they’ll need to make healthier lifestyle choices throughout their lives.
