Summer Thyme Cooks - Apply Now!

By Jamie B. RSS Wed, May 10, 2017

The Culinary Literacy Center is excited to present Summer Thyme Cooks, a fresh approach to learning about cooking, collaboration, and cost.

Summer Thyme Cooks is a FREE, four-part summer cooking program for kids and teens entering grades 5-12. In four weekly hands-on classes, students will learn basic cooking skills, including how to read a recipe, how to prepare seasonal fruits and vegetables, and how to stay safe in the kitchen. Food is meant to be shared, so every Summer Thyme Cooks class ends with a family-style meal. Students go home each week with a new recipe and a grocery bag filled with healthy, fresh, budget-conscious ingredients so they can cook with their families!

Apply online or pick up a paper application in the Parkway Central Children’s Department or Teen Central in Philbrick Hall at the Parkway Central Library. Questions? Call Jamie at 215-686-5323

Kids entering grades 5-7 can APPLY HERE »

Teens entering grades 8-12 can APPLY HERE »
