After-School Cooking Classes

Our second 6-week after-school cooking session starts in one week! Classes are Tuesdays at 3:30-5pm at Old Salt Marketplace. Each week we will taste the cuisine of a different country while practicing our kitchen skills. Students will learn different cooking techniques, knife use and kitchen safety. Each class ends with us sitting down to enjoy a meal together.

Only THREE spots are left! Sign up today! Class starts Tuesday, January 26th.

New Classes and Summer Camp!

I am excited to announce our Summer Camp schedule (In January! Planners Unite!). Turnip the Heat Cooking will be partnering with Deena Raphael from Camp Colorwheel to offer another round of cooking and art camp.

Our hands-on, 5-day summer camp explores world cultures through art, food, games, folktales and music. Each day we will discover a new country. Colorful art and craft activities will be led by Camp Colorwheel; Joanna Sooper will help campers prepare and cook their own lunch and snacks inspired by the day’s global destination.

Camp runs 9am -3pm, Monday – Friday. 

If your child attended last year, don’t worry, it is a big world and we will be exploring new countries!)

There are currently two sessions scheduled

Session One: June 20th – 24th

Session Two: June 27th – July 1st  

Here is a list of all our upcoming classes for kids and adults

Eating the parts of a plant!

I have been stretching my Turnip roots a bit these last few months and have begun teaching in a local preschool. My bi-monthly classes include lots of tasting new foods, vocabulary, and a little bit of off-key singing. I have worked for 14 years with elementary and middle-schoolers, but this is my first foray into preschool! I love it! They are so curious, chatty, and engaging!
