Cooks + Books

You can watch the videos from this summer's Cooks + Books online classes

Do you and your kids like to cook (and eat!) fun food? Do you like books? Then you'll LOVE our Cooks+Books programs!

Each program centers around a popular children's book, with an experienced chef who will read from the book and interactively lead your family in making fun recipes that bring the book to life. Registrants will receive recipes and a list of ingredients in advance so they'll be ready to participate from their home kitchen via Zoom.

Some programs are designed for families with younger children (K-3rd grade), and others for older children (4th-8th grade). You are welcome to register for whichever best fits your family.

The programs are completed, but you can watch the videos of each by clicking on the links below.
