A list of family-friendly places to learn cooking with kids in the Twin Cities.
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.
The Lorax, a classic Dr. Seuss story, introduces our responsibility to the environment. In its usual exciting Children’s Theatre Co. fashion, we are transported into the colorful world of Truffula Trees, Brown Bar-ba-loots, Swomee Swans, and Humming Fish. Giant puppets, a dazzling set, eye-popping costumes and props, lively music, and Seusstastical rhyme all convey the message of The Lorax.

FREE Rides from MetroTransit– MetroTransit offers free rides between 6pm and 3am every St. Patrick’s Day. Joy’s family has taken advantage of this to go to the Minneapolis parade. (Note: Even just after the parade, the bus was full of intoxicated, but mostly harmless people.) This year, the weather is shaping up to be pleasant, so it can be a nice excuse for a family excursion – especially if you pick a less traveled route.
St. Patrick’s Day Fun at Home
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I love this “holiday.” It’s a fun one for me because there are no expectations. If we forget it, it’s okay–nobody is worse for the wear. If we celebrate it, EVERYONE in the family has fun.
