Cooking Schools for Kids

Find a Cooking School for your child in you state

More and more kids are getting interested in learning how to cook. Although I am a huge fan of teaching your children how to cook at home, there are some excellent commercial cooking schools now available to our young adults.

Here is a growing list of some of the schools that I found available on the Internet. This list is for information only and I highly recommend you do your homework and thoroughly check out these schools before sending your kids.

Please be sure to check out my Squidoo lens called Teaching Your Kids To Cook. It describes the benefits of teaching your kids how to cook at home in your own kitchens and a great way to start your children’s culinary adventure.
