Back to School    

The kids are back in school, and parents are already filling in those fall calendars with lots of activities. Our Kids & Teen Cooking Classes are a fun and educational weekend afternoon outing in Lincoln Square for 7 - 16 year olds.

Your child will walk away from class with a new appreciation for cooking. From measuring ingredients and following a recipe to trying new foods and learning about kitchen safety, your child will learn lots and have fun doing it!

Registration is now open for ALL fall kids and teen classes and summer camps on our website.

A Teacher with Passion
Chef George If your child attended one of our Kids or Teen Summer Camps this year, they likely came home raving about Chef Instructor George Gaitan. George taught our camps this year with a vigor and passion and sometimes, even a costume. He employed a slightly different approach to cooking, inspiring creativity like we've never seen before from our young chefs. Check out his blogs about his journey this summer. George will continue instructing our fall Kids & Teen classes.
