Kids Cooking Club

Kids Cooking Club of Fort Collins


The Kids Cooking Club is a program designed to teach kids and teenagers the 10 fundamental skills of cooking. For each skill they master they’ll receive a badge. After they’ve mastered the required skills they’ll be presented with an apron and their first professional chef's knife that was hand-selected by us from The Cupboard, valued at $120, and thanks to their new skills, they’ll be prepared to use it successfully and safely.


In this program, we teach your kids the same fundamental skills that are taught in cooking schools around the country. We teach kids the same as we teach the adults! Each class is hands-on with a chef instructor and assistant where your child will be guided through making several recipes while learning multiple cooking techniques. We do the dishes but we encourage a “clean work station” mentality to set your kids up for success in the home or in a culinary career.


Whether your child is interested in a career in the culinary arts and wants a jump-start on their skills or you just want to set them up with the basic cooking skills needed to feed themselves and their future families, the Kids Cooking Club will equip them with cooking basics they will use for the rest of their lives.

How Does It Work?
You sign your child up for the kids club here. You then sign them up for any classes you’d like them to attend in their age group. Each class they attend they will learn 1-3 skills and at the end of the class, if the instructor judges they have mastered the skills, they will receive their badges.
