Cooking Club

During our cooking classes we focus on following different levels of recipes from appetizers, side dishes, main dishes and dessert getting support from staff as needed. Along with following recipes we learn different cooking techniques, cooking vocabulary, and safety in the kitchen while making amazing dishes with friends and peers. We then set up our dinner table, family style to practice eating, socializing and dining appropriately with peers.
