Children's culinary arts program
The 2016 Children's Summer Program had several culinary arts experiences where the kids had a great time integrating creativity into their cooking projects.  More topics are planned, some where a parent and child work together.  The children's sessions are posted on the Kids' Events tab.

Contact us if you are interested in a culinary experience for a private group.  We have many resources available and are happy to work with you to design an event.
