For $15, today's side deal gets you one children's cooking class at The Merry Kitchen on NE 72nd Avenue. This Groupon is good for any children's class at the $30 enrollment mark.
Founded by passionate nutritionist and Western Culinary Institute graduate Julie Merry, The Merry Kitchen is geared toward teaching healthy, seasonal cooking to students of all ages. Each class holds eight to 10 kids, ensuring all junior chefs will receive a high level of attention. Upcoming subjects include the science of baking Disney Princess Dishes for kids ages 5–10 on July 10 and the art of Off to College Quick Meals for teens ages 16–18 on July 25. Most classes run two hours and include all necessary materials. Check out the calendar for an overview of upcoming classes.
After years of formal and playful training, Julie, who composts and grows many of the ingredients used in her classes, believes that the inherent curiosity of children is a strong force, and no flavor or meal is too mature for any particular age. She has remodeled her home, which is where the classes take place, to include a 2,000-square-foot garden on the outside and a modern kitchen space on the inside.
Class reservation is required at least two days in advance.
