Attention all Little Women fans! Have you ever noticed that good food that is lovingly cooked and happily shared is at the heart of the novel? From their beautiful Christmas bounty to the simple pleasure of an apple picked from the orchard, the March sisters ate well! We, too, can be a part of this enchanting world through this class. For each of our meetings, we'll be making one dish that has a connection to the novel. Come on by to try Amy’s Christmas Day muffins or Jo’s gingerbread!...
This class is taught in English.

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!
