Our personal tips

Kids can be reluctant to try new ingredients, but the more they know about them, the more likely they are to give them a chance. That’s why introducing the ingredients is such an important step during cooking classes.

Mountain or valley? Teach kids to make a level cup or spoonful with a knife: 1) fill the measuring cup or spoon, 2) level it off so that the “mountain” becomes a “valley.”
