Nourishing Nummies! A cooking class for preschoolers.

  • Sugar Beet Schoolhouse 349 Ashland Avenue River Forest, IL, 60305 United States (map)

Young Chefs love to experience food with their hands and will explore everything from leafy greens to squishy beans as we make simple and tasty snacks together. Young chefs work together to take apart fruits and veggies with their best tools - their hands! Squishing strawberries for jam, tearing leaves for a stir fry and kneading flour and water for dough is so much fun and creates a positive environment for trying new foods and flavors.
This 1 hour class will take place at the new Sugar Beet Schoolhouse location in our Young Chef Classroom with small tables and chairs and fun and safe kitchen tools perfect for little hands. 

$100 for 4 week session

Originally from Columbus Ohio, Wendy has now been living in Chicago for just shy of a decade.  For the last few years she has worked for the Chicago Botanic Gardens managing a rooftop farm downtown and instructing inner-city teens in a class on urban agriculture. In that position she was able to not only teach the students how to grow and tend to a variety of veggies and herbs but also how to prepare healthy seasonal dishes using their abundant harvests. She has cooked and baked in multiple cafes in Chicago, focusing mostly on vegan cuisine. She lives in Humboldt Park with her husband Chad, her tiny sous chef Solomon, her cat Paris Hilton, and a 145 lb mastiff named Tank.
