Virtual Classes for Kids & Teens

How Virtual Cooking Classes Work

The classes are suitable for kids and teens ranging from 8-16 years old. If registering younger kids, parents must be prepared to supervise as we will be utilizing cooktops, ovens, and knives to prepare the recipes.

Our Philosophy


The Cooking Lab’s two founders - Michelle and Mat - each has three kids and knows from experience that kids can be fickle with their tastes.  We also know that kids are more willing to try new foods when they’ve had a hand in preparing them. With that in mind, our kids’ classes are designed to foster creativity, encourage experimentation and build confidence and independence in the kitchen.  We teach kids age-appropriate cooking skills and expose them to a wide array of ingredients and flavors with the goal of developing healthy eating habits and a willingness to try new foods.
