UPCOMING TEEN COOKING CLASSES IN MADISON WITH CHEF JOEL

CLASSES FOR TEENS:

Chef Joel offers some classes specifically for Teens or Tweens/Teens.  These cooking classes are appropriate for youth ages 13-17 years old (Teen classes) and youth ages 11-17 (Tween/Teen classes).  If you have any questions about whether classes are appropriate for you/your child, please contact Chef Joel at hemmachef@gmail.com.

Teens are also very welcome in any of Chef Joel’s “Kids” classes.  Chef Joel keeps class sizes small and has students work together in small groups.  He generally groups kids by age and ability level and makes sure that everyone is challenged and kept busy in class.  All of our classes are hands-on and involve lots of cooking.  Kids/Tweens/Teens do the cooking!

Chef Joel enjoys working with teens and young adults and would be happy to offer more classes for older youth.  If you would like to arrange a class or private event for a group of teens, please contact Chef Joel: hemmachef@gmail.com.
