PLEASE READ THRU EVERYTHING & VIEW THE ‘ITEMS NEEDED’ LIST BELOW BEFORE REGISTERING. Be sure you have or can get all necessary items before registering for child.
This is a hands-on class where students will make the recipes along with me in a live virtual class via Zoom. To participate in the live cooking class, students/families will need to gather materials prior to class and have everything out and ready to go before class begins.
STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE ZOOM INVITATION VIA PARENTS EMAIL AFTER REGISTERING. Please check email for accuracy before submitting registration. Recipes will be sent via email the day before the class for students and families to review and confirm they have all items needed.
Virtual classes will range between 45-90 minutes which includes some time for the student outside of class. For example, if we are making a baked item, the class will end when the item goes into the oven and the students will be responsible for timing and removing the item on their own.
Parents or older siblings can assist students at any time, if needed.
