Teen Cooking Series
Teens need the knowledge and tools to make healthier choices.
These cooking classes will provide fun, more nutritious options for the snacks and meals that teens crave most.
Nutritional information will be sprinkled in with basic and intermediate kitchen skills instruction.
For the time being, these classes will be virtual only.
Winter 2021 Session – Cancelled
This 6 week session will include quick and easy sweet and savory snacks and stovetop meals. All recipes are vegetarian with vegan and meat added options. Recipes and virtual instruction will also include modifications for dietary preferences and allergies that may be present in the household. Please reach out to the instructor for any questions related to allergies.
Chips, Dips and Nachos
The first two weeks cover oven baked root chips, tortilla chips and from scratch dips and cheese sauce. There will be suggestions and tips for ways to incorporate a variety of vegetables in each of these savory snacks.
Chocolate Treats and Snacks
Chocolate is something that my teenagers can never eat enough of! These two weeks cover quick “chocolate fixes” and some treats that can be made and eaten throughout the week (if they last that long).
Take Out from Home
The last two weeks cover two take out favorites: Asian and Tex-Mex. These classes will re-create more nutritious versions of noodles, sushi and burritos.
