In the Kitchen with 12 Kitchen Elves. In their kitchen they believe in magic they create with their own hands! Elves will be introduced to basic kitchen safety, get familiar with kitchen equipment and utensils and, of course, they will get involved in lots and lots of cooking and baking. Their program is developed with the idea to introduce students to healthy eating habits and different food groups, teach them basic recipes, help young Chefs to become self-sufficient and partially independent in the kitchen. For safety reasons, all students must wear closed toe shoes; chefs with long hair have to have their hair pulled back. All classes include adult supervision and guidance, printed recipes, aprons and chefs hats to wear during the class. No food or drinks are necessary since Kitchen Elves will be making all food themselves!
