Kids summer cooking workshops at Healthy Eats Classroom are here! This fun class series will teach your child kitchen skills and techniques!

Spices are a great way to get your kids to experience a new flavor and try new foods. In this class kids will be mixing up three spice blends: BBQ, Ranch, and Indian. Each child will take home a sample of each spice blend to try on different foods and get to taste them in class on some fun snacks! We will also cover information on basic spices, learn all about their history and flavor profiles with some fun worksheets.

This is a hands-on class where each child and parent will be involved in mixing spices and making some snacks with them. Kitchen skills includes: learn about individual spices, how to blend flavors and spices, and how to cook with each spice blend. Each participant will get to try the class creations of the below menu! Come have fun with us in the kitchen this summer!
