Cooking is a life skill that sadly not everyone has. Knowing how to cook can vastly improve our ability to save money, provide meaningfully for our family, and nutrition. But part of making healthy choices in life is knowing the skills to turn nutritious ingredients into an enjoyable meal. Getting kids to form healthy eating habits is no easy task, but by teaching them approachable skills and fun techniques, we can help pave the way. 

In this course, we will work together with kids in an interactive and engaging cooking class, designed to bring approachable, fun, and nutritious recipes to your home kitchen. Our instructors will lead your kids through a variety of dishes using easily accessible ingredients from your local supermarket. 

The course begins with a focus on basic, safe and fundamental cooking skills. We’ll teach them a broad spectrum of skills spanning through preparation, tasting and seasoning dishes as well as how to choose healthy options, read nutritional labels and reduce food waste. The class is suitable for kids 10-16 years old, with recommended parental supervision for kids under 16. The menu changes each term.

"One of the question we have from our customer is they can go online to cook but they can’t ask anyone the dish because Asian food are new for them. These days, families and friends want to learn basic and new skills by getting back cooking, sharing and celebrating at home instead of going out due to Covid 19.
