As part of our Bolinas School district cooking class program, this season we are offering family classes.  Family classes offer a unique opportunity for families to share in the creative learning process of cooking together as a community. Working together to create healthy meals, the group learns how to work cooperatively with one another while having loads of fun. Family cooking classes offer a new and exciting way to foster family and community pride! In these classes we learn about food and cooking and each other.  What we see unfold in the kitchen when families and communities cook together is magical!

Almost all kids and all families love mac and cheese, it’s an American classic through and through. In the midst of a world where so many have wandered far off the path of the homemade “real cheese” variety, opting instead for the heavily processed, powdered versions fed to us by the heavy hitters and money makers of the processed food world, we can still say “Yes!” to homemade deliciousness and “Pass” to the under nourishing, overhyped bore of the boxed variety.  In this class we offer something for the entire family. Economical recipes that family grocery buyer loves, healthy options so we all grow well and pay homage to our local bounties and mix and match flavoring options so each family member’s palette is respected and their bellies filled and nourished with the comforting nature of baked noodles. We even offer a few dairy free versions incase you need that too. Healthy whole ingredients is what we will use, in simple to make, quick to get on the table, priced right options for the family.

Class welcomes all Bolinas families! If you don’t have kids of your own, take the opportunity to invite one of your friends or neighbors’ kids and treat them to some food and fun!
