We go through the activity workbook doing one or two worksheets and a fun activity prior to cooking. We go through the recipe step by step together as a group from assembling everything they need to meal completion. Sonya is also cooking the meals from home. Meals are made almost entirely from scratch and most meals should yield enough servings for the entire family! Sonya and Ryan are there to guide and answer any questions kids and parents have. One or more parents are asked to be in the kitchen while your child is cooking to help supervise. For the final class, we do a special recipe and all kids receive a certificate of accomplishment. Parents can request a receipt as well.
Parents are contacted in advance of each class to connect on supplies needed for their kits for the upcoming recipe.
