Do you know a tween who loves to cook or wants to learn to cook?

Central Market and Slow Food Austin have partnered to offer the Slow Food Young Chefs Cooking Class Series which will introduce 7-12 year olds to kitchen fundamentals like shopping, prepping, cooking, and cleaning up. Join us for one (or all three) of our summer cooking classes.

Young Chefs will prepare a simple, nutritious and tasty one-pot meal. Our first class focused on Breakfast, and the Young Chefs learned to prepare Magic Bus Hash Browns. For our second class, the theme was Lunch. The Young Chefs made Ramen Noodles with stock made from scratch rather than using seasoning packets found in packaged instant meals. Our third class in this series is all about dinner, and the young chefs will prepare Peach Chili with a cornbread crust. We’ll come together at the end of the class to enjoy a delicious meal.

At each class we will be offering door prizes for items to stock the Young Chefs’ kitchens from sponsors like Le Creuset, Zinger, and Breed and Co . Dietary restrictions are happily accommodated, but please do let us know in advance.
As a proud sponsor of our Slow Food Young Chefs Cooking Class Series, Zinger Hardware is offering an assortment of cooking tools and utensils for your young chef. Your purchase will help support Slow Food Austin, as they are donating 10% of sales of those items to Slow Food Austin. The more you buy, the more you support!
