KIDS' TEST KITCHENKids’ Test Kitchen is on a mission to get young eaters cooking, tasting, and thinking about healthy ingredients! Let’s continue to redefine kid food; one lesson, and one child at a time! Each class presents students with an opportunity to explore new or familiar foods in their raw, unmanipulated state. Then, working as a team, we’ll slice, dice, peel, measure, and cook until we’ve prepared the finished dish. Lessons are planned to celebrate seasonal produce as much as possible. Spring brings longer, busier days! Let the kids help plan and prep dinner – we’ll work to boost their confidence in the kitchen so you can enjoy meal prep together, or maybe – maybe – you can step aside and watch! At the end of class your aspiring chef will receive the main ingredient, or a sample of the finished dish, and the recipe so that they can show off what they’ve learned! Even the most reluctant eaters enjoy KTK, where participation is expected, but tasting is always optional. Kids have food allergies, but they shouldn’t miss out on the fun. We know allergies and can work around them, making sure that everyone is having fun and staying safe. *Please clearly disclose all food allergies and/or dietary restrictions upon registration. Spring session 1: Edamame Salad, Ener-Cheese, Asian Inspired Broccoli, Super Spear & Orange Stir-fry, Skillet Pizza with Veggies, Green SmoothieSpring Session A: Edamame Salad, Nourishing Nachos, Greens ‘n Things with Chicken, Sausage & Angel Hair, Crepes, Stuffed Bell Peppers, Polenta & Fruit Salsa-Effective 2/23 the Board of Health voted to make masks OPTIONAL in all town buildings.

Then, working as a team, we’ll slice, dice, peel, measure, and cook until we’ve prepared the finished dish. Lessons are planned to celebrate seasonal produce as much as possible. Spring brings longer, busier days! Let the kids help plan and prep dinner – we’ll work to boost their confidence in the kitchen so you can enjoy meal prep together, or maybe – maybe – you can step aside and watch! At the end of class your aspiring chef will receive the main ingredient, or a sample of the finished dish, and the recipe so that they can show off what they’ve learned! Even the most reluctant eaters enjoy KTK, where participation is expected, but tasting is always optional. Kids have food allergies, but they shouldn’t miss out on the fun. We know allergies and can work around them, making sure that everyone is having fun and staying safe. *Please clearly disclose all food allergies and/or dietary restrictions upon registration.

KIDS' TEST KITCHENKids’ Test Kitchen is on a mission to get young eaters cooking, tasting, and thinking about healthy ingredients! Let’s continue to redefine kid food; one lesson, and one child at a time! Each class presents students with an opportunity to explore new or familiar foods in their raw, unmanipulated state. Then, working as a team, we’ll slice, dice, peel, measure, and cook until we’ve prepared the finished dish. Lessons are planned to celebrate seasonal produce as much as possible. Spring brings longer, busier days! Let the kids help plan and prep dinner – we’ll work to boost their confidence in the kitchen so you can enjoy meal prep together, or maybe – maybe – you can step aside and watch! At the end of class your aspiring chef will receive the main ingredient, or a sample of the finished dish, and the recipe so that they can show off what they’ve learned! Even the most reluctant eaters enjoy KTK, where participation is expected, but tasting is always optional. Kids have food allergies, but they shouldn’t miss out on the fun. We know allergies and can work around them, making sure that everyone is having fun and staying safe. *Please clearly disclose all food allergies and/or dietary restrictions upon registration. Spring session 1: Edamame Salad, Ener-Cheese, Asian Inspired Broccoli, Super Spear & Orange Stir-fry, Skillet Pizza with Veggies, Green SmoothieSpring Session A: Edamame Salad, Nourishing Nachos, Greens ‘n Things with Chicken, Sausage & Angel Hair, Crepes, Stuffed Bell Peppers, Polenta & Fruit Salsa-Effective 2/23 the Board of Health voted to make masks OPTIONAL in all town buildings.
