Kids in The KITCHEN
Presented by The Trustees
Join us in The KITCHEN for a series of cooking classes for kids ages 6-12 to learn about local food and the journey it makes from the farm to the table. In these hands-on classes, kids explore and taste the seasonal bounty of the region through the local vendors of the Boston Public Market.
These classes are held in collaboration with vendors in the Boston Public Market and are taught by market vendor cooks or farmers who tell first-hand stories about where the ingredients are sourced and how they are grown/made.
Classes will be held on the following Saturday mornings from 10:00 am to 11:00 am:
Parents: You are welcome to stay and watch the activity during the class. If you would like to leave your kids in the KITCHEN without you, please do not leave the Boston Public Market, and please plan to pick them up promptly after the 1-hour class has concluded.
Classes are deliberately small (max 12 kids) so please register in advance to guarantee your spot.
IF YOUR CHILD HAS A FOOD ALLERGY, please email email@example.com
and provide details of what foods to avoid.
December 9 | Winter Squashes with Siena Farms
There is nothing more seasonal in December than squash! Siena Farms will lead the class through a squash recipe - roasted squash with maple syrup and sage cream (a nod to Barbara Lynch's iconic recipe). Plus we'll talk about all the varieties of squash, where they come from, how they're grown, and how they're harvested.
December 16 | Shop Locally & Save the World
We’re going on a shopping spree in the market to get all our favorite foods – come with us! We’ll stop at different vendors in the market and learn about what’s seasonally available and why local matters. After we’ve shopped, we’ll make an omelet with winter veggies and cheese from Appleton Farms.
Tickets: $9 for Trustees members and $15 for General Tickets (non-members). Join The Trustees and receive 20%-50% off all classes, workshops, and events at The KITCHEN and all Trustees properties.
