Kids Cook is a series of Extension cooking classes where children can learn basic cooking skills, typically provided when school is out during the summer.
Students participating in Kids Cook classes will learn basic knife skills, measuring, how to follow a recipe, kitchen and food safety, and a variety of basic cooking techniques to create delicious and nutritious snacks and meals.
