Who says kids can’t cook? Not the Bonifas Arts Center! The Bonifas is teaming up with 4-H SPIN Clubs to help you raise your kids as enthusiastic cooks and healthy eaters.
Integral parts of the program are basics of nutrition, kitchen tools and techniques, hands-on food preparation, food safety, presentation, table manners, and use of utensils.
This year, a new curriculum is being launched based on international cuisine. Through foods, participants will travel to Italy, Ethiopia, Russia, China, Poland, and explore Native American heritage.
Kids from all local schools are welcome. This is a great after-school program with built-in snack and fun learning.
Taught by Dave Radloff, Stephanie Ostrenga, and Irina Bruno, the Kids Culinary Classes will be held at the Home Economics kitchen of Escanaba Upper Elementary School (EUE) on Tuesdays, Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, Nov. 5, and 12 from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.
The fee is $50/series (series only—includes the 4H participation fee) for students in fourth grade.
The classes fill up fast, so sign up at the EUE or by calling the Bonifas at (906) 786-3833.
