After-school hands-on cooking workshop for kids 8-12
“Pizza Mania” will guide your kids through 4 different pizza-inspired dishes, using healthy, local ingredients. These fun, hands-on classes engages your child with healthy ingredients and helps build kitchen confidence. Kids learn useful food and nutrition basics, cooking skills and kitchen safety, and even how to clean up a little too (hopefully!).
Week 1 – Italian Pizza
This traditional take on pizza will include a marinara sauce and all the delicious toppings and cheese that your kid loves.
Week 2 – Mexican Pizza
Homemade tortillas will make up the base of this pizza followed by salsas, beans, meat, veggies and cheese.
Week 3 – Sushi Pizza
Last time I was in Vancouver I was introduced to oshisushi (pressed sushi). This is version of sushi includes layers of delicious items such as sushi rice, smoked salmon, sriracha mayonnaise, avocado and more!
Week 4 – Dessert Pizza
Of course we cannot have a cooking course without dessert! The final class will be a creation of dessert pizzas topped with stewed fruits.
