Children will spend instructional time discussing knife safety and cutting rules, learn how to make simple cuts and prep a recipe. Class fee includes a 6 inch K Sabatier chef knife, carbon steel peeler and a Japanese hinoki cutting board to take home.

They hope to help families make a commitment to forge ways to cook and eat together on a regular basis. The course will also include a simple nutrition lesson; including whole grains, healthy portions and food combinations that make for healthy plates and eating habits.
