I have a 10 year old daughter who–more than anything–loves cooking. I, personally, am not a fantastic cook or teacher.
My girls in particular love to cook with their Aunt Ruhama and their Grandpa Kordatzky. Unfortunately, both these willing chefs live in Deep Wisconsin (extreme south and extreme east).
So the fact that there are schools for chefs-in-the-making here in the Twin Cities makes me so incredibly happy.
Thanks to our sponsor The Kids Cooking School. Tiffany Cavegn has opened the perfect shop for kids to learn to cook. With a spunky and knowledgeable teacher, any kid will learn how to cook a 3-course meal.
