What you will learn
Your kids and teens can become the cooks they’ve always wanted to be! Sign them up for this three-part series and they'll master the basic skills for kitchen success. Whether your young chef is a beginner or simply looking to expand their culinary repertoire, our instructor will teach them all the essentials for creating incredible meals from scratch. This mini culinary-school education consists of three hands-on classes where they’ll learn how to create dishes using fresh, seasonal ingredients and discover tips for getting the most value out of their time--and your food budget.

Session 1: Building a Foundation
You’ll work alongside classmates, honing knife skills as we prep fresh, seasonal produce. Our instructor will walk you through techniques for roasting, creating creamy chowder, making vinaigrette from scratch and more. Plus, we’ll share secrets for baking up perfectly flaky buttermilk biscuits.

Menu: Fall Greens with Purple Grapes and Toasted Walnut Vinaigrette - Chicken, Corn and Sweet Potato Chowder - Perfectly Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits with Maple Butter

Session 2: Expanding Your Repertoire
In today’s class, you’ll practice everything from roasting and pan searing to plating like a pro. We’ll cover the surprisingly simple techniques for mastering risotto and show you how to make flaky, delicious pie dough from scratch.

Menu: Saffron Risotto with Wild Mushrooms - Pan-Seared Salmon with Pomegranate, Orange and Shaved Fennel - Apple Crostata with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Session 3: Advanced Techniques
In our final session, we’ll build on the skills you’ve learned and take cooking to the next level. Our instructor will walk you through the steps for roasting, poaching, caramelizing onions and more. Plus, you’ll learn how to create your own pasta and caramel sauce from scratch.

Menu: Handmade Pasta Dough - Pappardelle with Tuscan Sausage and Caramelized Onion Ragu - Sous-Vide Carrots with Parsley, Shaved Parmesan and Pumpkin Seeds - Spiced Poached Pears with Warm Sea Salt Caramel
