PARENT CHILD COOKING CLASSES
Spend some time with your very special 'little chef' at Schola cooking together in our kitchen. The classes are designed to teach both parents and children how to do everything from rolling the perfect sushi to making great ice cream. Classes will last about two hours and culminate in a tasting of everything you've created. Prices for the class are per guest, so if you'll be bringing one child you'll need two tickets, if you're bringing two children, three tickets, etc.
Parents are welcome to bring children of any age if they are comfortable with them being in a kitchen in which there will be hot pans, knives, etc. The tables upon which we work are normal counter height. If your little chef is on the shorter side, we encourage you to bring a small step stool on which they can stand and work.
Please remember that we can't offer refunds to classes because our seating is very limited. If you can't make a class, you can send a friend in your place. Email us at least six hours before the class starts and let us know who will be taking your place.
The Art of Making Pasta - Tuesday December 28, Noon
Making fresh pasta used to be commonplace but with the advent of easy to cook, dried pasta, fresh pasta has taken a back seat in the kitchen. Unfortunately, once you've tasted the fresh stuff, it is hard to go back! Join us as we used the pasta sheeter to create a few of the old favorites - fettuccine alfredo, pappardelle in Bolognaise and cheese raviolis in spinach pesto. $55/person. TICKETS
The Art of Making Pizza - Wednesday December 29, Noon
Pizza, probably one of the most enjoyed foods in this country, is fun and easy to make from scratch at home. We'll learn to make both a thin crust and deep-dish pizza crust, craft sauces and prepare toppings for this ubiquitous food. We'll then spend the rest of the class making our own pizzas and eating them! $59/person. TICKETS
Asian Dumplings - Thursday December 30, Noon
Every culture has their version of a dumpling, but the Asian cultures have perfected them! Join us as we create the perfect fried wanton - the Crab Rangoon, then fold steamed shrimp dumplings and pork shumai and make a few classic dipping sauces to go with them. $59/person. TICKETS
The Art of Making Sushi - TBD
Traditional Japanese sushi can be considered very simple...just fish and rice. But it is much more complicated than that. Join us as we explore the proper way to make sushi rice, how to choose and cut different types of fish and how to make the basic sushi styles; Nigirizushi or 'hand-pressed' and two different rolls - Maki and Uramaki. Of course, we'll turn you lose to create your own sushi creations!
Classic Kid's Food Favorites - TBD
There are some iconic dishes that define childhood cuisine...the chicken finger, the tater tot and mac & cheese. Unfortunately, in the busy lives we live today, these dishes are often prepared from frozen versions, cooked in a microwave. Join us as we make these classics from scratch, using only fresh ingredients and traditional cooking techniques. And, to make this lunch complete, we'll bake a few cookies and spin some fresh ice cream for ice cream cookie sandwiches.
