$50 for $100 Worth of Kids' Cooking Classes

Kids expand their palates in cooking classes appropriate for different age groups and featuring menus that rotate weekly ($35 each). Youngsters aged 3–6 can enroll in an Assistant Chef session to glean basic techniques such as measuring and mixing, and ages 7–11 can begin to hone their culinary creativity in Jr. Chef classes.

Though The Kids Cooking Corner sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

The Kids Cooking Corner

From the outside, the nonprofit, 100% volunteer-run Kids Cooking Corner has the whimsical appearance of a fairy-tale cottage, its white siding accented by baby-blue paint and surrounded by fresh flowers and topiaries. The interior of the century-old house is equally exciting to youngsters, though not because of a prince or fairy godmother willing to do all of the heavy lifting. Children work hard at The Kids Cooking Corner, but the work is disguised in fun and rewarded with tasty snacks. Instructors warmly welcome foster children and children with special needs into their classrooms.

Helmed by chef, health enthusiast, and mother of three Heidi O'Connor, the volunteers at The Kids Cooking Corner strive to educate whippersnappers on nutrition, food safety, and food prep, often helping picky eaters try new foods along the way. Instructors incorporate math, science, and reading into curricula, teaching real-world applications for kids' school-sourced skills. Children definitely get their hands dirty, however: in spring and summer, they spend time in The Kids Cooking Corner garden, getting firsthand experience working with ingredients from seed to plate. Brightly painted walls, a playful party room, and a fully stocked kitchen provide a safe, exciting environment for kids to get crafty with edibles during each class, as well as during summer camps, parties, and peaceful games of food baseball.

Hi there! I wanted to know why you thought it was expensive? We charge 99 for 5 classes. Its just about the same price as you got with the Groupon for 3 classes. Did you know we scholarship low income families and help with tuition as well. Did you know no one gets paid here because we give back to our community and that we are all volunteers? Just so you know it takes 2,000 a month just to pay our overhead. Not including food. Our house is really old so it takes a lot of money to keep this place going. This is why I take nothing from the school but only give back to the kids and parents. I hope you have a better understanding on what we are trying to do :)
