Since we will be cooking, it is strongly suggested to have an adult nearby for help. We will be using the stove and the oven, as well as chopping ingredients. 

If there are any students with allergy concerns, please tell me in advance, and I will make sure not to include any recipes with your child's restrictions. I want this class to be inclusive to all. 

Please also keep in mind that we will have brief discussions about the novel’s time period and themes. All content will be presented in an age-appropriate manner. 

I look forward to meeting your chef soon!
