    Kids should be prepared to take their cooking to the next level without having to worry about getting “Chopped” in this fun, challenging workshop.  Instead of complaining, “There is Nothing to Eat!,” kids will learn to recognize that there is usually plenty to eat, it will just take a some thought, effort and a little time.  After a quick overview of flavor profiling and general cooking principles, participants will team up in small groups and come up with a plan to cook a variety of dishes using the ingredients on hand.  Each participant will get to make something they have come up with.  Options will include vegetarian and gluten-free items.  (Other dietary concerns will be considered upon request.)  The class will emphasize practicing safe knife skill and kitchen skills while keeping workspaces clean and organized.  This is not a class for beginning cooks.  Participants should have the ability to read and understand recipes and think in terms of what should be started first when preparing a meal.  Location: St. Mark’s.  Class Cost: $60.
