AFTER SCHOOL COOKING CLASSES

CALL OR EMAIL US TO BRING WAY COOL TO YOUR SCHOOL 952­-949-­6799 or lynn@waycoolcookingschool.com

The Way Cool Cooking School Inc., is expanding its off-site cooking program to schools in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area. The program takes a hands-on approach to food education, emphasizing cooking skills as much as nutritional values. With the school programs, young chefs learn how to slice, dice and chop as they make healthy meals to share together.

The Way Cool Cooking School is now bringing their hands-on approach to learning to you through after school programs, field trips, and holiday break and summer camps. The curriculum, which incorporates creativity, math, science, and life skills, also teaches nutrition and healthy eating habits during our variety of available programing. The Way Cool Cooking School has been working with nearly 5,000 students a year and is excited to extend their reach to educate the community about cooking and nutrition further throughout the twin cities.

 “With today’s concerns about obesity among children and adults, it’s more important than ever to learn healthy cooking habits at any age.  Cooking lessons are a lifelong skill that can ignite creativity, build self-esteem, and most importantly build family values and memories that will last forever.”
Lynn Elliott, owner
