The Kids cooking program at Stepney Elementary will begin today, October 11th as part of the Arts & Imagination program.
Our six week session will be based on “Nutritious and Delicious” menu items, from starters to meals to sweet treats! Everything made with whole grain, nutritious ingredients that taste great too! We will use as much seasonal, local and organic produce as available. The kids will learn some basic cooking skills, measurements, health benefits of eating everything that grows in our local gardens, composting and most of all, how to be adventurous in their eating habits.
At the end of the session, all the kids will receive a mini-cookbook with all of the recipes cooked during our program so they can enjoy these recipes at home with their family.

This sounds awesome and I would love for my sons to go to as they get older. How do we get you to come to Stratford?
Just call your school main office and ask them about their after school programs, that’s how I did it! I talked to our principal.
Good luck and have fun!
I love the idea of the kids getting a mini cookbook at the end of the class, so that they can go home and be the “expert” cook. What about leaving some pages blank so that they can illustate their own cookbook? How’s that for using the imagination!
I think that’s a great idea. As a matter of fact, I had them drawing while we were waiting for the food to cook! But, I forgot to take real pictures of the food and my team. I’ll have to remind myself next week!
