Cooking Lessons Just for Kids!

I will be posting the summer schedule for classes
in the spring – please check back then!
During the school year I offer kids’ classes for private groups,
so gather 8-12 of your friends and let’s get something scheduled!

If you’d like to set up a private group class for your kids and their friends, please contact me to discuss your group and what you’d like to cook. Classes outlined below are samples of popular classes held in the past. Don’t see what you like? Email me what you’d like to arrange and I’m happy to set it up for you!sushi with tuna vegetablesSushi for Kids
Learn how to make sushi rice, rolls, and more – and remember, sushi doesn’t ever have to include fish, so come learn how to shape sushi rice in your hand and roll up what you like, then use chopsticks to eat your creations!

Pizza Party
In this popular class we’ll make homemade dough that you can take home to make pizza for your family, then we’ll each make an individual pizza for lunch along with a salad. With the rest of our dough we’ll make some surprising other treats!

Dessert Party
This will be a baking bonanza, with kids taking home most of their baked goods. We’ll make Chocolate Biscotti,Confetti Cupcakes, Individual Apple Tarts, and Snickerdoodle Cookies. Note that this class will run from 1pm to 3pm (instead of the usual 11am to 1pm) to give kids a chance to eat lunch first.

Mexican Fiesta
We’ll start this class off making homemade Guacamole and Salsa for the kids to snack on with some chips, then we’ll head right into making Chicken Enchiladas, Mexican Rice, and a Mexican Caesar Salad.

Italian for Kids
Everyone loves Italian food, so back by popular request, we’ll make Spaghetti Alfredo, Baked Ziti with homemade Marinara Sauce, Meatballs, and Garlic Bread. For dessert, we’ll make a kid friendly version of Tiramisu. And while everything is in the oven, we’ll have fun making homemade pasta to take home.

Class Size: usually limited to 10 to 12 kids

Ages: generally between the ages of 7 and 18, but call me to discuss if you have younger kids you feel are ready or if you have young adults who want to book a class with their peers

Cost: $40 for child and includes full meal (dessert party includes take home baked goods)

Reservations: hold your place in any date now by contacting me via email or phone.

Location: My Kitchen, 2403 S. Milwaukee St. in Denver (just east of DU)
