Kids love to cook, and learning how is a gift that lasts a lifetime. Butter Beans teaches after school cooking classes with seasonal, fun recipes that the whole family can enjoy.
Students will learn how different foods affect their bodies, and how to put together a balanced plate. Some menu highlights include panzanella salad, sweet potato pancakes, pad Thai and coconut rice, with a focus on the different food groups represented in each dish.
Through our classes students will not only learn culinary tricks to making a terrific vinaigrette and poaching a perfect pear, but will also learn about food preservation while making their own jam and pickles!
As students cook they also learn kitchen skills like how to properly use a knife, or how to season food while also exploring math skills through measuring ingredients and adding them to recipes. All classes conclude with time for a shared meal and lively conversation. From seed to table, students gain an appreciation for food, learn great cooking techniques, make friends, and have fun!
