The Secret To Getting Kids To Cook At Home

Blog, Cooking, Cooking Classes, Featured, Fun, Healthy Family


We like to make it EASY for parents to help their kids become independent in the kitchen.

Here’s the trick we use to get them cooking:  Make the class a GROUP experience and make them ACCOUNTABLE to show up and partake in the lesson.

Tell me if this is familiar.

Your child wants to cook a new dish, or try a recipe.

You put it off for a few days.

Life gets in the way.

You never make the recipe.

The reason is because there wasn’t a REASON to make the dish immediately.  

But with a cooking class that you invest your money and time into, you know with certainty you and your child will show up READY to cook and learn.

I’m a believer in “The more you pay, the more you pay attention.”  

If you want to become healthy, put your money where your mouth is and invest in a gym membership, a series of exercise classes and/or a personal trainer.

If you want your child to become independent so he or she can cook a meal on his or her own one day, buy a week of cooking summer camp and we can even ship you the ingredients!

That’s the true SECRET to learning a new skill: invest the money, time and be accountable to a good teacher…or in our case…a great CHEF teacher.
