In-School Cooking Classes

Slow Food cooking classes provide hands-on, inquiry based experiences for students to develop cooking intuition based on taste education and kitchen skills. We allow learners to gain comfort with kitchen equipment and cooking, so that they can experiment with flavors and ingredients on their own.

Important information:

  • Classes are at least 1 hour (see descriptions below), and can be longer depending on your schedule.
  • Class size should be kept to under 30 children for the most effective lesson – if you have a larger group, please call to discuss options.
  • Each school may have two free classes per year, but we are happy to teach additional classes for $75 each.
  • You are responsible for the cost and purchasing of ingredients for the lesson – we will provide you with a shopping list.
  • Inform us of any food allergies or special diets.
  • We will bring all cooking equipment needed for the class.
