Now We're Cooking

New year, new menu! If your child hasn't tried this program I highly recommend you give it a shot because it's a blast. Join Ethan from the comfort of your own kitchen as we cook and bake delicious foods together. Each week the group will cook or bake together over Zoom. Ingredients for each program will be emailed to parents weekly. Parents can choose to purchase these themselves or pick already purchased supplies up from the Town Hall, 10 Elm Street; or have Ethan drop them off at your house. During program participants will learn kitchen skills and safety, cooking tips and tricks, new recipes, and have lots of fun.
