Adventures in food for curious cooks.

Bring Adventure Kitchen to your kitchen

For Schools and Children

We have a lot of fun cooking with kids!  We explain things in kid-friendly ways, and we sometimes simplify recipes or techniques - but we never dumb things down.  We honor children’s intelligence and curiosity by sharing the complicated truth about the people, places and foods we explore in our classes, in age-appropriate ways.

We have fun!  While we talk about food, cooking, kitchen etiquette, safety and cleanliness, we design our classes so that kids also explore many other interesting things such as:

  • Stories from history, mythology and religion

  • Why people eat the foods they do

  • How people use language – English and many other languages – to talk about food

  • How geography affects the foods people eat

  • How to choose ingredients that will be good for our bodies and delicious to eat

  • How to save money by making smart choices at the grocery store

  • How science helps us cook food and kill germs

  • How to use math skills to follow recipes

  • And much more, usually led by the children’s questions and interests
