Little Chefs

Little Chefs

Your home is a great place to launch a child’s cooking education, but when it’s obviously more than a passing fascination, maybe it’s time to investigate a more formal cooking education for your child.  At Doodle Academy, our Little Chefs program has a standardized approach to passing fundamental cooking skills on to the next generation of great cooks.

Your 3-year old is not going to be chopping vegetables, but he or she might measure some ingredients into a bowl and help mix up a cake.

There are additional benefits to learning about preparing food, since math, reading and other core skills are used during the process.  Socializing with other kids in a common pursuit of sustenance fosters cooperation in a way that doesn’t put a lot of pressure on them.  Classes end with some type of tasting, where kids enjoy the bounty of the children’s efforts.

  • Little Chefs program is focused on providing a safe and fun environment for budding chefs to explore and discover their own creative culinary points of view. 
  • Food prep skills are at the heart of the programs, but kids are also exposed to other important food-related concepts. 
  • Etiquette, in and around the kitchen, and table service skills are conveyed in a way that keeps kids interested.
  • Safety is emphasized along the way as kids dive into an education that also includes elements of science, math, reading, and health.
