Young Chefs of HK

The HK Recreation Department is offering some fun cooking classes this fall. Young Chefs is for boys and girls in grades 1 – 5.  It meets from 4:15 – 5:45 pm at the HK HS B-112. The fee is $26  each class (non-residents add $5).  It is a unique culinary experience which will offer cooking classes to children in a safe environment that will encourage discovery and creativity. Each visit will be a new experience with fresh monthly themes and exciting new programs. Students sharpen their skills by employing the mantra, “Mise en Place” which, in the cooking world, translates into “Everything in its place.” Young chefs will learn basics in kitchen safety, proper food handling, food preparation, cooking and baking techniques, presentation, and so much more! At the end of each workshop the young chef will leave with a packet of info on how to recreate what we made in class and tasty treats for their family to try.
