KID’S KITCHEN OASIS
The kitchen’s a laboratory, and everything that happens there has to do with science. It’s biology, chemistry, physics. Yes, there’s history. Yes, there’s artistry. Yes, to all of that. But what happened there, what actually happens to the food is all science. – Alton Brown
Kids are the recipe for changing how we eat in our society today. At Kid’s Kitchen Oasis, we are dedicated to creating programs that engage our students in the pleasure of cooking. Through food, we aim to turn young people into gourmet stewards who understand how to prepare food that is good for their body and soul. Learning by cooking, food also becomes a vehicle through which children excite their palates, exercise their math skills and employ their creativity and cooperation skills, and discover and appreciate other cultures and traditions.
Through the wonders and delight of cuisine, we aspire to create a generation of healthy eaters who will share their culinary passions while having fun and cooking delicious meals. Led by Nadine Nelson, a trained educator, and administrator with over 15 years experience in private and public schools. She brings her expertise in teaching, program planning, curriculum development and cooking to her team and students. Kid’s Kitchen Oasis has a foundation in interdisciplinary learning complemented by STEAM exercises that will prepare your child for the 21st century in a way that brings joy, fills stomachs and makes friends. Kid’s Kitchen Oasis is a complete garden – to – table summer lab for kids 6 – 15 years old.
Classes, workshops, and cooking labs engage students in the multifaceted nature of food from seed to waste through activities like sprouting seeds, nature walks, tending to a garden and harvest food grown from our hands, cooking seasonal dishes, painting still lives of our vegetables, and creating our own food memory books. Below, please find our robust offerings for kids for schools, after school programs, scouts groups, church programs, and in private homes for personal instruction or celebrations.
