This hands on team-based cooking class will reveal Teaching Table’s secrets for cooking spontaneously with what you have in your freezer, pantry or from your local produce haul. Participants will work in teams to develop a main dish or small plate, a sauce and a dessert using the available ingredients. You will also learn tips for organizing your freezer and pantry and utilizing these strategies at home.
In Teaching Table's first series just for junior chefs ages 11 to 14, participants will develop their culinary independence and learn culinary basics. Each week for 4 weeks, students will plan and prepare a full dinner menu.
This election day we will be cooking up some classic "American" eats. While school is closed for polling, your kids can meet at the Teaching Table to talk about what it means to be American: our freedoms, our responsibility to vote, and the foods that have bubbled in our melting pots for over 200 years. See more and the entirely vegetarian menu here.
