What are your kids planning to do this summer? If they want to learn to make pasta, pizza, and other yumtastic dishes from scratch, they should apply to attend Summer Thyme Cooks at the Culinary Literacy Center – 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 throughout August 2018, students 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!
Space is limited! Apply online or pick up a paper application in the Children’s Department or the Teen Center in Philbrick Hall at Parkway Central Library. The deadline to apply is June 19, 2018.
Parents will be notified of their child’s selection by the end of June. Classes will take place at the Culinary Literacy Center, located on the 4th floor of the Parkway Central Library at 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
