Event Details

Calling all aspiring chefs! Back by popular demand, our Cultivating Cooks Youth Culinary Series is adding a Fall/Winter session to its 2017 season in October (see specific dates below). We're excited to welcome back Chef Lisa Crawford as the  leader of this inspiring program. The Fall series is separated into three sessions for ages 8-16 year olds. We welcome you to sign up for the entire series at one time, or purchase an individual session that best suits your budding chef's culinary needs. Please note, students must complete either 101 or 201 in order to advance to 301.

Cultivating Cooks: 101

The basics of cooking seasonally | Calling all cooks!

Wednesdays, October 4-25, 2017, 5:00-7:30 p.m.

Just for youth: Four, 2 ½-hour classes teaching hands-on kitchen and cooking skills.  Each week will have a different ingredient focus while students work on knife skills, use of kitchen equipment, and all around kitchen safety. Participants will prepare, cook and enjoy their creations, all from seasonal, organic, local and sustainably grown ingredients, at the end of each class. All students, even those comfortable in the kitchen, are encouraged to take this 101 series, as each subsequent series will be built on these foundational skills.

Week 1: Fruits and vegetables, their individual characteristics, and how to use them in soups and salads.

Week 2: Dairy, eggs and grains with emphasis on breakfast.

Week 3: Proteins, animal & plant-based with emphasis on lunch and/or dinner. This class will cover several methods of cooking, such as blanching, sautéing & pan-frying.

Week 4: Sugar and what it does in baking. This class will include  preparing and baking items both savory and sweet recipes.

Throughout the program students will work in pairs and teams as they gain culinary experience and develop confidence in their cooking abilities. Chef Lisa and assistants will provide education as well as motivation so that the young chefs feel inspired to continue their culinary education as they go forth to cook for family and friends. Whether your student is a first time cook or already has some culinary experience and wants to enhance their skills, they will take home a wealth of knowledge that will be used for years to come. Cooking is an experience, not just a meal, and we look forward to sharing this culinary experience with your family.

Instructor: Chef Lisa Crawford

Lisa began cooking and baking at a young age. Growing up eating vegetables right from the garden, getting bottled milk from the local dairy, and canning fruit each fall from the orchards of friends, instilled in her the importance of where food comes from. Today she teaches people of all ages how to prepare tasty meals from sincere ingredients. You can find her at 21 Acres, PCC, and at her own place, The Tiny Kitchen tinykitchenseattle.com.
