Making their own simple and healthy food is a very engaging experience for children. If this is also an opportunity to be introduced to a new language, the time spent in the kitchen becomes exciting! The students will prepare every day a different recipe, such as fresh pasta, gnocchi, pizzette, tartine, and many others. During class, students will learn the Italian words used in the kitchen (for foods and tools), but also the names of the days of the week, months, numbers until 20, colors, and the names of family members. They will listen to some traditional anecdotes about famous Italian “masterpieces” such as pizza and tiramisu’. Join in for a fun and educational class!
Please note: Poly Summer recognizes the importance of keeping allergic students safe and preventing both the ingestion of allergens and cross-contamination when using shared facilities and utensils. If you have an allergic child enrolled in the cooking class, please note that the school cannot guarantee that recipes, facilities, and utensils will be free of gluten, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, and legumes. If you have a child with known food allergies, we ask that you please give careful consideration before enrolling in the class and contact the Director of Health Services, Marcy Kwitny, for further guidance.
