Choose from Three Options

  • $19 for a 90-minute Mom (or Dad) and Me cooking class for one adult and one child age 8–12 (a $40 value)
  • $59 for a four-hour intensive cooking class for one adult (a $120 value)
  • $59 for a two-hour cooking class for two adults (a $120 value)<p>

The Mom (or Dad) and Me class helps kids develop confidence and have fun in the kitchen while preparing favorite dishes, such as mac ‘n’ cheese or spaghetti and meatballs. Each fun class culminates in a shared meal of their creations.

The four-hour intensive cooking class has a longer duration to allow students to more rigorously explore kitchen skills. Students learn more complicated processes, such as making bread, and receive more detailed and advanced advice than basic adult classes or reading the back of the Hungry Man box.<p>

In the two-hour cooking class, groups of 4–10 adult students prepare an entire meal from scratch, gleaning culinary skills, tips, and techniques along the way. Classes cover a wide range of cuisines, such as Italian cooking, sushi, burgers, or fish.

At the end of every session, students share and enjoy each other’s culinary handiwork. Classes that involve cooking with wine are reserved for those 21 and over, and all others are open to ages 18 and up.<p>

Let's Cook Alaska

Let's Cook Alaska's talented teaching chef, Josie McKinney, fell in love with cooking at a young age. By the age of 12, she was preparing Thanksgiving dinner for her family. Now, as a mother of four, she shares her joy of cooking by inviting students into her “dream kitchen,” where they develop culinary confidence by working with her recipe box full of diverse meal ideas. In her cooking classes, she aims to transform cooking from chore to adventure. Josie’s fun, hands-on teaching style encourages students to get their hands messy by trying techniques for themselves and clean by stuffing them into their friends’ mouths. While students prepare entire meals, Josie circulates among them dispensing tips. Classes stay small—around 4 to 10 students—to ensure lots of individual attention and extra servings to go around when the class sits down together to enjoy their creations. Menus rotate with a monthly theme, such as comfort food and international fare, prepped with fresh, local ingredients.
