Foodie Generation 


More children are dipping their fingers into the culinary scene these days. Opportunities are cropping up for kids and teens to learn about the food they eat, where it comes from and how to make it.

From taking cooking classes to watching online tutorials to trying different ethnic cuisines, there are a lot of ways aspiring young foodies can get involved with food. Our Chef Sara Salzinski provides advice for the so-called "foodie generation" in this article featured in the Huffington Post.

The Chopping Block has just released our Winter - Spring 2015 kids and teen classes in hopes of getting more young people interested in cooking.

We know our students would be perfect for this opportunity! Popular television show (especially with our chefs) MasterChef Junior will be casting in Chicago this Saturday, December 6, 2014. If you think your child can hold his or her own with Chefs Gordon Ramsey, Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianich, give it a shot!
