Cooking for Middle Schoolers

Cooking Program for Students Ages 11-14

Wednesdays, May 3-June 7, 3:30-5:00
Registration is closed for this program

Cedar Circle Farm & Education Center is proud to announce a new culinary program for middle schoolers ages 11-14. The six-week session takes a well-rounded approach to teaching older children culinary skills that will develop and expand their love of cooking.

Participants will learn basics in: kitchen safety, proper food handling, food preparation, nutrition, cooking and baking techniques, and presentation, through weekly themed classes.

We will take every opportunity to head out to the fields to harvest fresh vegetables and herbs from the farm as we learn about the science of flavors and the importance of freshness when it comes to making delicious and nutritious meals.

This program will be co-taught by our Education Manager Eric Tadlock and Kitchen Manager Theo Damaskos.

To ensure safety and enjoyment for each student, class sizes are limited based on space and availability.
