After School Cooking Classes

Come see first hand how much you have to gain!

After school cooking classes will empower your child to make independent & healthy food choices.

Unlike other classes with The Connected Chef, our after school cooking classes focus solely on cooking. Your child will be given in depth instruction that will build their cooking skills.

Their time with The Connected Chef will allow them to develop a deep knowledge of where their food comes from and how it’s prepared.

 

Our goal in after school cooking classes?

With consistent exposure and instruction, they will move towards the ability to cook and create dishes on their own.

The backbone of after school cooking classes

Technical Skills

With their learned knife skills & safety and knowledge of various methods and techniques of cooking, you will notice that your kiddo will begin to help you in the kitchen more and more.

By learning to cook with their senses and not just read a recipe, kids able to learn the science behind cooking. They will focus on the WHY and HOW of cooking and not just WHAT they are cooking.

 

Creative Expression

Cooking will give them an outlet to express themselves creatively. It is a chance to explore, experiment and try new things. (which for some, can be scary at times)

Creative expression is of vital importance for all of us. For kids who spend most of their day on reading and writing, this opportunity to explore and experiment on their thoughts and ideas provides an important outlet and leads to a more well-rounded young person.

 

 Problem Solving

Our after school classes provide a VAST opportunity for your child to learn how to problem solve. Your child will learn to troubleshoot as things go awry and actively work their problem solving muscles.

Children are guided in visualizing a dish, thinking through their processes, learning to effectively lay out the steps to creating a dish

  • What went wrong?
  • Why did this work?
  • What could I do differently next time?
  • How can I make this better?

These are questions, students are prompted to ask regularly in class.
