Our lessons are suitable for students of nearly any age. We are actually cooking, though, so younger students may need some help from a "sous chef" from time to time. In our experience, students 2nd grade and up have the attention and manual dexterity required to complete most lessons independently.

  • Fancy Pears

  • Snappy Veggie LoMein

  • Summer Skillet Enchilada

  • Banana cookie "ice cream"


Recipes and lists are published 6 days prior to each class.

  • Schedule

  • Recipes

  • Shopping lists and equipment needs

  • Pre-class prep instructions (as necessary)

  • Zoom link


Students have our undivided attention as we explore new or familiar foods in their raw, unmanipulated state. Then we’ll work together, virtually, (via Zoom), to slice, dice, peel, measure, and cook until we have each prepared the finished dish. 

Participants learn about food safety, basic hygiene, and the responsibilities that come with working in the kitchen – like careful use of equipment and clean up!  

We are on a mission to get young eaters cooking, tasting, and thinking about healthy ingredients! Let’s continue to redefine kid food; VIRTUALLY!

“I hold a BS in Dietetics, and I am also a certified trained chef. I have worked in various aspects of the food service industry including hospitals, corporations and as a Culinary School Instructor. I moved to Massachusetts in 2016 for her husband, Sean, to take a role with Keurig Green Mountain. I’ve taken a few years off to be with my 2 daughters during their preschool and elementary years. My daughters, ages 10 and 7, are huge helpers in the kitchen. They help prepare dinners weekly doing much of the preparation work as well as becoming very good pastry chefs. Before moving to Massachusetts, I was part of an organization that introduced healthy choices through ingredients and cooking methods. From this experience, I decided this was the next stop in my career path which brought me to Kids’ Test Kitchen. I am excited to be part of the KTK team and I’m looking forward to bringing my passion of cooking to your children.”
