We offer age-appropriate cooking classes for the budding chef. These hard-to-find classes cover topics like cooking fundamentals, baking, ethnic cuisines, BBQ and so much more. We have done our homework to make sure your kids really learn something! Here are our program areas:

Tiny Tots in the Kitchen
(Ages 2-4)
Classes for the tots focus on very basic cooking skills that involve sensory aspects of cooking, as well as movements such as stirring and patting. These classes are designed for an adult to register with and work next to the very young child. It's as much a bonding experience as it is an introduction to the kitchen and to foods. 

Li'l Kids in the Kitchen
(Ages 5-8)
Cooking classes for ages 5-8 are designed to introduce food groups and basic cooking techniques appropriate to their developing skill levels. These classes are designed for an adult to attend with the child.

Junior Chefs in the Kitchen
(Ages 9-14)
Designed for young chef wanna-be's, ages 9-14, interested in becoming more proficient and self-assured cooks, our Junior Chefs Academy (JCA) offers cooking education designed specifically for this age group and skill level. What we know is that these kids are asking for 'real' cooking classes to help them build their knowledge and life skills. And what's great is that they will not only learn to cook, but will also build relationships in the kitchen.

Junior Chefs Academy
(Ages 9-14)

The JCA program offers an opportunity for these young folks to engage at a higher level with other young foodies, gather awards to showcase their advancement and skills, and participate in culinary events with us at The Culinary Center of Kansas City.
