Description

Class Experience

Students will become more confident and independent in the kitchen.  They will learn about seasonings and spices, basic cooking techniques, kitchen safety, and more, collecting recipes they can go back to with confidence and cook again.
My cooking experience began probably around 5 years old.  We had 6 kids growing up plus, relatives close in age that were often around for meals. (I never learned to cook in small quantity!)   Being the oldest, I always helped in the kitchen and learned to love cooking, canning and baking from a young age.  I might say my mom was a great teacher!  With our 5 children I felt it important to teacher them from a young age to be confident and knowledgeable in the kitchen, and to enjoy the process.  I've also taught bread making classes for years.
I will make every effort to have our meal completed as class ends, but there are some recipes that just take a little longer than the time we have so, students may be left with taking the meal from the oven to serve or finishing a few last minute details we do not have time for in class. I will leave them with all instructions needed to finish up.  They will also be responsible for all clean up that has not been finished as they go.
The list of all ingredients for each menu item will be send 4-7 days in advance. (I aim for a week) The recipe will be sent to put with your collecting recipes the morning of the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
You know best if your child is comfortable using the oven and stove top, as well as a knife or other small appliances.  If you or your child are uncomfortable with that, please be available to assist them as needed.
