A passion for food and cooking can start at any age and our chef instructors love to guide budding young chefs as they explore the culinary world.
Our learning centres in both Calgary and Edmonton offer a variety of courses to teach kids the proper skills and safety — along with techniques and cuisines — to put them on the right path for cooking.
In Calgary, chef instructors teach the cooking classes, focusing on safety, fundamental cooking techniques and kitchen terms through demonstration and hands-on activities. We encourage kids to ask questions to fully explore the world of cooking!
In Edmonton, kids finish classes with a good foundation of essential skills, handy tips and the practical knowledge they need to further explore their love of cooking. Our hands-on activities in a supportive environment empower them to make healthy choices and try new techniques.
Kids Cooking Camps (Ages 9 - 12)
We also offer engaging, hands-on cooking camps for kids. Our chef instructors and professional home economists cover all the basics of food safety, preparation and techniques that teach kids how to create tasty dishes from scratch. They enjoy the dishes they made for lunch and get to take any extras, along with recipe packages, home to share with the rest of the family.
These camps are typically offered during spring and summer breaks, as well as on PD days. We love how they teach valuable, life-long skills while nurturing an interest in the culinary arts.
Kids Birthday Parties (Ages +)
Celebrate a special birthday with a hands-on cooking party that keeps children happily busy from start to finish.
Available at both the Calgary Downtown Learning Centre and Edmonton’s Blue Flame Kitchen, these two-hour events are offered in a variety of kid-friendly themes sure to please.
