Culinary Artistas’ Cooking Program is based on a very simple tenet: food is a language that connects us to the outside world and to ourselves. It serves as a great tool to help kids learn a multitude of disciplines, all while paving their path to health. We cook wholesome and multicultural recipes that expose kids to new flavors, develop motor skills, incorporate various cultures, and ultimately, celebrate our time together around the table.
We design our curriculum around the following skills and topics:
- safety and knife skills
- basic nutrition
- intersection between geography and cuisine
- science behind the cooking
- taste exploration
- and always fun!
Our team will come onsite to the school location with all cooking equipment, tools, and ingredients. We are adaptable and can work with almost any space constraints, as long as we have a space to work.
- Afterschool: We partner with schools throughout the Bay Area to offer after-school and enrichment classes to kids from pre-K to 8th grade. Our classes are usually between 45min-1hr long and focus on developing basic skills in the kitchen while having fun.
- Enhanced Curriculum: We collaborate with educators and classroom teachers to create tailored cooking classes within the school day that will touch upon concepts of science, mathematics, geography and health.
We strive to take each school’s unique budget and needs into account when pricing our after school programs. There is a start-up cost for materials and a small activity fee at the start of sessions to cover the cost of groceries.
