Cooking for Middle Schoolers

This culinary program is geared toward a middle school students’ skill set. The lessons take a well-rounded approach to teaching students culinary skills that will develop and expand their love and curiosity for cooking and food.

This program is taught by our Education Programs Manager Meredith Rivlin. If you have questions, please contact her.

To ensure safety and enjoyment for each student, class sizes are limited to 8 students.


Fall 2019

Dates: Mondays, September 23 to November 4 (no class 10/14)
Time: 3:30 to 5:15 PM
Cost: $150 per 6-week session

From pizza to mac and cheese, cobblers to casseroles, this fall we are focusing on our favorite comfort foods—farm style! We’ll find creative ways to incorporate farm-fresh veggies into the dishes we make so that they are not only cozy but healthy, too.


Late Fall 2019

Dates: Mondays, November 11 to December 16
Time: 3:30 to 5:15 PM
Cost: $150 per 6-week session

As food sensitivities seem to be on the rise, we’ll be experimenting with alternatives to some of our favorite dishes. Middle school chefs will gain confidence in the kitchen by cooking main courses, baking desserts, and putting together snacks.

We’ll use farm-fresh ingredients and will incorporate ones that are free from gluten, dairy, nuts, eggs, etc. Please note that all cooking projects during this session will be gluten free, and students will also learn how to cook for a variety of dietary restrictions throughout the session.
