Let your kids discover the world of fresh herbs on our herbal voyage. This class is geared up to get your kids excited about herbs and cooking alike, utilizing both educational discussions, show-and-tell style learning, and hands-on cooking methods. Your kids get to touch, feel, taste and play with herbs. The discovery in this class is abundant. Kids will walk away with knowledge on 10 different culinary herbs and 3 to 4 novelty, exotic herbs. There’s no better way to understand how herbs function as the flavor center in our dishes than to hear about where they come from and then be able to play around with them using different recipes! Expect your kids to enjoy herbs snacks and drinks and for all of their senses to be awakened during this class. They’ll walk away with take-home recipes for all items made in class as well as their own starter kits of fresh herbs from our friends at Jacobs Farm
Recipes: Natural Citrus Herbal Sodas, Herbed Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries, Herb-Crusted Chicken Skewers, Herbal Pear Pie Pockets with Herb Sugar
Class Type: Kindercooks (ages 4-8 years)
Class Notes: Kids leave with recipes a starter pack of organic herbs!
