Cooking club is a popular after school club. This club is open to students in grades 3-8 and meets 2-3 times a year. Cooking club is for beginner chefs and helps students learn how to cook. They learn basic cooking skills such as the proper way to handle utensils and how to follow a recipe. Children learn how to feel more independent and learn cooking skills using recipes that do not require a lot of supervision. At each meeting children will prepare a sample of a chosen recipe, usually associated with a holiday.
