HOW DOES THIS WORK?
All class are Live and via ZOOM with Chef Sue! You will receive an emailed link
to download and print all of the handouts, activity sheets, recipes and ingredient requests.
The ingredients are usually ones that you will have at home, but purchasing
new foods to try and a few unusual ones is encouraged.
You will purchase the food ingredients ahead of class time and provide the safe work space in your home kitchen. The safety of your child is very important and I recommend that an adult is available to your student during the class. The adult should help with setting up the work space as the student needs, but once the class begins, the adult should remain hands off and is really just needs to be available for safety reasons only.
The cost of ingredients may run from $2 to $10 each week, depending on what you already have available and how much food you would like your student to prepare. Your child may prepare a dish for the whole family to eat for lunch or dinner!
Your student will have their ingredients and supplies ready at the start of our class time. During our class we will not only talk about the food topic, but will integrate discussion about different ingredients, nutrition, math, science, art, composting, and so many other topics!
General Format of the Class

2:00 Class ends.
2-2:15 Students clean their workspace and share their creations with others!
Chef Sue will walk everyone through the creation of the recipe, but know that often times students will want to spend more time after our 60 minute class continuing to create. Fun with Food requires everyone to clean their work space.
Fun with Food stresses the importance of
• RESPECT FOR SELF
• RESPECT FOR SPACE
• RESPECT FOR OTHERS
