Healthy Hands Cooking Classes


What KCC Kids Learn While Mastering the Art of Cooking.

Cultivate a sense of good nutrition in your kids by signing them up for cooking classes at The Kids Cooking Connection! Our classes are fun, safe, and teach kids how to make healthy food choices.  But KCC cooking classes offer so much more. They encompass math skills through measuring, counting, fractions, and sequencing. Reading skills are sharpened as they read recipes and increase their vocabulary. Science and Chemistry concepts are explored through making predictions, experimenting, observing how food changes, and learning how and where food grows.  We touch on geography and history as we explore International cuisines and generational recipes. There is a focus on art and creativity when young chefs learn that we eat with our eyes and presentation and use of colors can make a dish taste even better.  Chefs will make new friends, improve their social skills through teamwork, sharing, and responsibility.  Cooking is a universal skill that offers a unique opportunity to explore many life lessons. We hope you will join the KCC family fun!

Specialty Birthday Party - ages 10 & up

These birthday events are designed for ages 10 and up. Birthday guests will work in teams, having a blast whipping up an entree and dessert round from the "mystery box"  of ingredients. Chefs will have access to the KCC pantry to create their composed dishes. The two rounds will be timed for extra excitement. Don't worry if your kids do not know how to cook. We will have instructors guide them through the process and instructions on how to use the kitchen tools, on kitchen safety and a pantry tour.
