Holiday Cooking Classes

Holiday Cooking Classes Return

Even though it’s a busy time of year, packed with school, sports, and various activities, the holidays are a wonderful time to come together as a family.  When we take time to enjoy family traditions, we build lasting memories for our children.  Many of those memories take place in the kitchen or around the table, from making grandma’s cornbread dressing to the annual cookie decorating weekend with dad. 

Consider encouraging these moments by developing culinary skills in your children.  “Growing Gourmets” is offering 3 opportunities for your kids to gain skills in the kitchen and discover recipes that may just start a new tradition in your family!

Tricky Treats (next Saturday)
October 31; 10:00 am-12:00 pm           $20.00
(6-12 year olds)
Wear your costumes to our monster mash where we will brew up a new batch of spooky treats!  A favorite class, this year we meet on Halloween morning!!  We will start with a cauldron full of punch, cheese ball spiders and yummy mummy dogs.  But it wouldn’t be Halloween without the sweets, so we will finish with candy corn pie and caramel apples.   Your child is sure to have a howlin’ good time at this Halloween bash.

Let’s Give Thanks!
November 21; 10:00 am-12:00 pm        $20.00
(6-12 year olds)
Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without the whole family gathered around the table to enjoy family recipes passed down from generations.  This year your child will be able to add his own creation to the table when he learns how to bake traditional holiday dishes.  He will have such fun making edible cornucopias and turkeys and trying out recipes for caramel apple crunch pie, sweet potato mousse and homemade crispy cheese crackers. 

Visions of Sugarplums
December 12; 10:00 am-12:00 pm         $20.00
(6-12 year olds)
Does your child have visions of sugarplums dancing in her head?  She will after taking this sweet-filled class where holiday baking and candy-making take center stage.  Last year’s class was SO MUCH FUN for the kids and I had a blast too!!  Each child will make marshmallow pops, homemade candies and of course decorate sugar cookies to take home in a holiday tin.
