Teen Cooking Classes


Teaching your children how to cook is one of the best gifts you can give them. Our teen cooking classes will teach them to be creative, understand math fundamentals, science, nature, have excellent hand-eye coordination and be constantly attentive to reading and writing. These skills are among the most important to teach children when young. Getting children involved in preparing their own meals is also a wonderful opportunity to instill the import of eating nutritious meals. It may eventually become a necessity to teach children how to prepare meals; they may need to help out with family food shopping, preparation and cleanup. Becoming skilled in the kitchen is more than fun — it is necessary for survival! Also, if your young chef has aspirations of being a big chef one of these days, this is what it will be like in culinary school.

EIGHT talented teens with a flair for cooking will join our Culinary Arts program. This program could help develop the next top chef, caterer, pastry chef or simply produce the skills to help in the kitchen at home.

The team is led by Chef Wynton Mann, who is the founder of Wynton’s World Cooking School for the home chef.

Homeschool ProgramLearn More

Cooking is fun, educational, useful and a life skill. Everyone needs to eat, and the more we know about the food we consume, the healthier (and happier) we will be. Making cooking a part of your homeschooling curriculum has many benefits. Most kids love to be in the kitchen, if kids cook something they are more likely to eat it, and since cooking involves many aspects of science, it is a great thing to list on your annual portfolio review.

Birthday PartiesLearn More

We offer 2-hour birthday cooking parties for children in our kid-friendly kitchen starting at age 6. Children ages 6 can work unaccompanied by an adult.
