Teaching kids to cook.

Little hands, big skills.

Everyone loved it and it was incredible to see EVERYONE digging into pasta and salad. We don’t have too many picky eaters but a few and it was just amazing to see them digging in. Thanks so much for a really wonderful morning!

I offer Cooking Lessons, Cooking Workshops, and Hands-on Cooking Birthday Parties for children ages 3-14 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I do food programming for the Halifax Public Library, regularly leading cooking workshops at their branches.

I aim to teach children the basics of making food from scratch. Each lesson, workshop or birthday party covers a variety of dishes and kitchen skills; I use simple, whole ingredients, real kitchen tools, and hands-on methods. (Read more about my philosophy, and why these principles are so important for kids.)

If you are part of an organization (childcare centre, school, library, etc) that would be interested in hosting me to lead a hands-on cooking workshop, please get in touch. To see examples of what a Bite-Sized Kitchen workshop could look like, have a look at these blog posts. I lead workshops in English and in French.

Private lessons are $48 per student, plus an Ingredients Fee, which varies per lesson. All equipment is provided. I welcome menu input from registered families. To arrange a lesson time, simply contact me.

Birthday parties are $200 for 10 children, plus an Ingredients Fee, which varies depending on the menu chosen. To book a birthday party, simply contact me.

I have never seen so many kids be so excited about having greens in their smoothies! Merci Claire pour les recettes et l’expérience à notre école!
