Young girl in cooking class
Wheeling Parks & Recreation’ s Kids in the Kitchen is a summer event series focusing on ways to engage children in the kitchen.  We hope to motivate children to try new and healthy foods, have fun in the kitchen, and keep them safe providing resources on food safety and cooking.
Cooking is a life skill that every youth should have the opportunity to develop. Kids in the Kitchen is a youth program that is designed to do exactly that. Basic skills such as how to follow a recipe, measure ingredients, use a sharp knife, utilize the oven, stovetop burners, and a microwave are all essential skills.

We are partnering with Melissa Rebholz from Midge's Kitchen for a Pizza and Pepperoni Roll class and a Buttermilk Biscuits & Jam Making class.  In the Pizza and Pepperoni Rolls class, kids will learn the basics of stretching out homemade dough and using it to top pizzas and roll up pepperoni rolls.  We'll also make our own pesto for the pizzas using local herbs.  Toppings will be seasonal ingredients from local farms.  At the end of the class, we'll bake our pizzas and sit down to a lunch with a salad of fresh greens to accompany our pizzas.  Kids will take pepperoni rolls and leftover pizza home.  

In the Buttermilk Biscuits & Jam class, we'll learn how to make Buttermilk Biscuit dough from scratch.  Each child will roll and cut out their biscuits.  They'll learn a simple recipe for a seasonal jam using berries from a local farm.  At the end of the class, we'll enjoy our fresh biscuits & jam with a big fresh salad and herbal ice tea.  Kids can take leftover biscuits and jam home. 

We are also partnering with Libbi & Devon from Table 304 for a Kid's Grazing Board class.  Participants will learn the art of creating a grazing board. A snack will be provided for the participant to sample while building their board.

All supplies will be provide.  Please see each individual activity for dates/times of classes, age range, pricing, and location.  Any questions , please call 304-234-3641.
