Summer Sizzler Cooking Series

  • July 14, 2023
  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • CNS 2325 Massachusetts Ave. Lexington MA 02421

We would like to give kids and their parents an opportunity to cook together. Not struggling with planning, groceries shopping or adding an educational element to some fun time.

We have teamed up with Kids Cooking Green and offer hands-on cooking programs for children. Your kids will learn cooking skills, along with valuable lessons in health, nutrition, the environment, and the benefits of local food and farming.

What to expect:

At each class we will cook, eat lunch together and build a community around a shared kitchen table! There will be lunch served for both kids and adults.

In conclusion, for only $40 a kid and a parent get 2h of structure fun and a delicious lunch served. And because it’s held at CNS there will be time for some fun play too.

**LexFUN! Members will get a reduced price if you register for all 4 events before June 15**

Sign up for all 4 sessions right here 

Age eligibility and Additional Information:

Kids age 3+ years that either enjoy cooking or would benefit from getting closer to the cooking action.

We are delighted to include older siblings, up to age 7, for an additional charge of $5/session. Siblings under age 2 years 9 months are welcome free of charge. 

This is a parent-involved event. The parent and child will cook together under the guidance of the host. The parents are responsible for the kid’s safety around knives and the fire.

Menu (all items are nut free):

Friday July 14: Pasta PARTY

It’s a pasta party! Kids will learn to make a pasta dough, just like the pro’s using semolina and durum wheat. We will knead the dough, roll it into pasta ribbons and then cut them into spaghetti with our hand crank pasta machines. As our pasta cooks, we will cut up some colorful tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. We will smell the basil, gently tear the leaves and toss with our pasta!

Let’s shake things up today by having breakfast for lunch. We will talk about farm animals, and where eggs come from. Each child will chose a colorful veggie to add to their eggs, and then get crackin’ to mix and cook what we call “eggs In a basket” We will buzz up Fresh fruit smoothies with seasonal berries and yogurt.

Friday July 28: Wacky wonderful waffled Grilled Cheese with local Tomato

We love cheddar, and it is fun to grate and make this sandwich on our waffle makers! We will talk about different colored tomato- Did you know there is a yellow, and red, and black tomato. Do you think they all taste the same? Do they all have the same shape? For a super delicious summer dessert, we will make up a batch of tiny blueberry hand pies.
