Cultural Cooking with Your Children

Cooking up Culture with Kids at the Boston Center for Adult Education

WHAT: Cooking is a great way to introduce your children to the tastes and cultures of foreign lands. Enjoy a fun and interactive cooking class at The Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE) while spending quality time with your child with “Around the World in Seven Days”. Beginning on Friday, May 6th, 2011, this 7 session class provides children with an opportunity to mix, measure, and pour ingredients as they prepare dishes from around the world—Mexican tacos, Japanese sushi, and more! Part art class, part math class, part mid-afternoon snack, the class is a perfect way to develop children’s socialization skills, hand-eye coordination, and sense of wonder.

Part of the BCAE’s Child Enrichment Program, Bean City Kids, this class is perfect for children three to six years of age. Children will be the chefs, customers, and waiters—and their parents or caregivers will participate as well, sharing the fun and the food alike!

To give more children a chance to participate, the class will be offered twice this term: once at 2:30PM to 3:30PM, and again at 3:45PM to 4:45PM. Different recipes and countries are covered each term, so returning students will have just as much fun every time.

WHEN: Begins Friday, May 6th, 2011; 7 Sessions; from 2:30PM-3:30PM and from 3:45PM-4:45PM; ends June 24th, 2011; Class will not meet on Friday, May 27th, 2011

  1. What a great idea, I wish we had something like that to attend locally. Our local Wildlife Trust did put on a ‘Grow It, Eat It’ course for carers and toddlers that was great fun but I love the idea of doing something like this with slightly older children.
