After-School Cooking Classes

CUSD After-School Program



We teach young chefs how to cook up some FUN! Our chef instructors bring knowledge and creativity to your kitchen, equipped with recipes and a list of ingredients and equipment your kiddo needs to prepare culinary delights for the entire family. No PB & J here, our young chefs are always exploring something new! We focus on fresh ingredients and the importance of home cooked meals.

We teach kids life-long cooking skills like:

  • Cutting, slicing, dicing, julienne, shredding (with safety tools)
  • Dry & liquid measuring
  • Safe food handling/food assembly
  • Sweet vs. Savory ingredients and dishes & food substitutions

Kids will make 1 recipe per class, all hands-on and from scratch. Your family will get to enjoy your child’s masterpiece, whether you choose to cook it right away or save it for later!

Please note: A parent helper is required in the kitchen, depending on the age and experience of your little chef!
