Growing Chefs! Ontario: Monthly Kid’s Cooking Classes

Monthly Kid’s Cooking Classes

In-Person Kid’s Classes are back! Stay tuned for themes and menus for our Winter 2022 classes!

Posted on: Oct 27, 2021

Registration for January’s Monthly Kids’ Cooking Class is now closed. 

Please Note: In accordance with the most recent public health measures, January’s Monthly Kids’ Cooking Class will be offered virtually. Our Chefs will take participants step-by-step live through the recipes. Recipe kits will be included in the price of registration and will include all the ingredients you need to cook along at home. Please see the event page for further details. 

What to Expect: Join our Chefs each month as they explore seasonal flavours and exciting twists on much-loved recipes that are great for the whole family! Our Chefs will take participants step-by-step through the recipes, helping your young chefs develop confidence, enthusiasm and cooking skills.

Do your kids fall out of our age range? Do you prefer to cook along in your own kitchen? Check out our recipes in our Growing Chefs! at Home catalogue so you can cook along with our Chefs at home!

Ages: 711
(Must be 7 years old by the date of the class)

will be hosted at our new location, The Grove at The Western Fair District, located at 900 King St. This facility is more spacious than our Growing Chefs! Headquarters, with a teaching classroom equipped with audio/​visual supports.

Dates & Time:
Monthly Kids Cooking Classes run from 5:30pm – 7:00pm on Wednesday Nights, once per month. 

*We may add a second date each month due to increased demand!*

Winter 2022 Dates:

  • Wednesday, January 19th – Theme: Winter Comforts

Capacity: To ensure every participant has the opportunity to interact with our Chef team and program staff, while properly distanced, the capacity of this program is limited so participants work at their own tables.

Pricing: Recommended price of $25 per child, subsidized price of $10 per child.

Registration opens the 1st of the month (*except January) and space is limited, so we recommend registering as early as possible to reserve a space as there will be no drop-ins. Growing Chefs! Ontario is committed to providing low-cost food education experiences for children and youth. If cost is a barrier to registration, please contact [email protected]​growingchefsontario.​ca to explore subsidy options.

Chef Leaders: Our Education Chef Team: Chef Katherine, Chef Anna, Chef Ryan and Chef Nick

COVID-19 Safety: Growing Chefs! Ontario is in regular contact with the Middlesex London Health Unit to ensure we are following strict guidelines. Throughout the pandemic we have always gone above what was required by public health measures. We are following guidelines for cooking and food skills programs set-out by Public Health. Participants are required to wear a reusable or single-use medical mask unless eating, or maintaining a distance of at least 2 metres when outdoors. Surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized regularly, and in between each activity, and when participants leave an area.

Food Allergies:
If food allergies are a concern, rest assured that our team is highly experienced in managing dietary restrictions. Do not let a dietary concern prevent your child from participating in our programming. Get in contact with our staff team and we’ll do our best to make appropriate accommodations.

Once full payment is received and registration is confirmed, any cancellation must be directly communicated to Growing Chefs! Staff as early as possible. Cancellations made once the program has started will be eligible for refunds on a case by case basis.
