Cooking and Baking Classes for Kids and Teens

The Gourmandise School loves to teach kids how to cook! We have cooking classes and baking classes during certain seasons for kids (6-12), and teens (12-17).  Our 2 1/2 hour kids classes are $75.  They are typically once a month on Saturday mornings, summer break and various holidays when school is out.  Our kid & teen cooking camps run during the summer and during school breaks.  Keep an eye on our full schedule for updates.

Special Events and Private Parties for Kids

For an extra special experience, we recommend letting us host a private event any time you like for your kids and their buddies for birthdays, workshops, or any special occasion.  We offer a variety of fun filled party menus to choose from for kids ages 4-12.  All parties are a hands-on cooking experience where our Chef instructor and support staff are dedicated to making sure your child gets to learn to make a delicious meal and enjoy it with their friends.

Children are greeted upon arrival by our Chef and assistants and given aprons to decorate and take home.  Kids are supervised through the entire party as they enjoy cooking in a commercial kitchen with their friends and family, creating delicious dishes to enjoy with everyone!  If your kiddo is a fan of cooking shows such as Chopped or Master Chef Junior, we can customize your event to include a “secret ingredient showdown!”

Parents are welcome to bring a birthday cake and we will slice and serve it for you. We provide all plates, utensils, cups, and drinks (punch and water) for the kids. We have the kids covered, not the parents.

We can also provide Gift Bags at an additional cost to reflect the kids’ culinary experience!

For more information and availability contact Claire Soley, our Head of Special Events.

At The Gourmandise School, we focus on the best techniques and use local sustainable ingredients whenever possible. Our produce is sourced twice weekly from the Santa Monica Farmers Market. Our fresh seafood comes from Santa Monica Seafood. We use sustainable poultry such as Mary’s Free Range Chicken, and get our beef from Whole Foods or other sustainable providers.
