Good cookin’

While teens and tweens know their way around the snacks in the cupboards, they don’t always know their way around the kitchen. Whether your teen has a culinary curiosity, or just an insatiable appetite, What’s Cooking, an introductory class for teens, is the perfect way to get them prepped and primed for independence in the kitchen. 2:30pm.
