The seasoned and passionate chefs at Classy Kids Cook helm after-school cooking classes ($45/class) designed to teach burgeoning culinarians, age 4–18, how to create their own healthy creations from scratch. During these fun and interactive classes, students will learn how to follow recipes and properly measure ingredients in the well-stocked kitchen space, sizzling up healthy dishes devoid of junk food or Play-Doh cardamom. Teachers guide participants through a new dish each class, so it’s a good idea to peruse the class calendar before reserving a spot. Past dishes include sausage-cheddar quiches, minestrone soup, turkey-avocado club sandwiches, and 400-foot sculptures of Martin Fillmore made out of sautéed asparagus.
At The Flavor Exchange bottles of olive oil dot marble countertops, peek out of rough-hewn wicker baskets, and run along the length of walls lined with pantry shelves and curio cabinets. The polished metal gleam of the lids sealing jars of preserves or spices cast a dappled glow on olive-green walls. Though the ample selection may overwhelm some gourmands, the shop’s EVOO experts curate the experience, guiding customers from decanter to decanter, chatting about winsome flavor combinations, and treating palates to tastes of organic herb-infused balsamic vinegars. Additionally, the staff leads occasional cooking classes, giving budding chefs a chance to experiment with olive-oil-infused entrees and add a few unique recipes to their repertoire without having to infiltrate Betty Crocker's research and development fortress.
