Teaching the life skills of eating right and food preparation to young children.
SproutChef’s cooking classes are created to introduce sprouting chefs to the pleasures and benefits of preparing healthy food. The ingredients are seasonal and fresh. The participants may follow a recipe or create their own recipes, depending on the lesson of the day. Without even knowing it, the participants have to follow directions, work together, measure, work with fractions and be creative. There are no worksheets, grades or evaluations. Everything is hands-on. The sprouting chefs are their own critics when they taste their food. For some classes, they will bring food home to share. Even the pickiest eaters will try new things in this atmosphere of curiosity, wonder, and experimentation. There is also a spirit of community.

SproutChefs also does custom children’s events.

  • Birthday Parties

  • Cookie or cake decorating parties.

  • Religious events

  • At home cooking classes for groups of kids or youth.

  • Give Mom and Dad a break. Chef Lisa leads the kids in the preparation of the family dinner.  When she leaves, dinner is on the table and the kitchen is clean.

  • Events or cooking classes can be tailor-made, depending on interests, locations, and budgets. Chef Lisa brings all the supplies and does not leave until everything is cleaned up.

  • Contact Lisa to plan your next special event.

Most cooking sessions begin with creating and decorating a cookbook binder. Every class after that focuses on specific recipes. If they like the day’s cooking project, they may cut and paste the recipe from the SproutChefs’ blog and add it to their binder. Their individual cookbooks will vary depending on interests and tastes. Creativity is strongly encouraged, along with continuing to add recipes after the class ends.
