Kids’ summer cooking classes 2017 (in Alabang)

Hello folks! Summer is kicking off which means kids are spending days at home glued to Netflix or iPads (or both!). Get them off social media and digital screens and into the kitchen learning important and useful life skills.

If you want your kids to learn how to chop, prepare and cook vegetables, and eat nutrient-dense meals, these are the classes for them.

  • Wednesdays (savory food) and Thursdays (desserts) only, 10am to 2pm. 12 classes in total!

  • Savory Wednesdays: pasta, sushi, veggie burgers, Filipino / Pinoy food, pizza, fancy pants food
  • Sweet Thursdays: cookies, saucy desserts, fruity desserts, chocolate desserts, cupcakes, breakfast desserts
  • On Thursdays the kids and I cook and eat a nourishing vegetarian lunch. Vegetables are always included.
  • Pricing: ranges from  P1,150 per class to P1,600 per class. For example, if you sign your child up for 10-12 classes, the rate is P1,150 per class. If you sign your kid up for only 1-3 classes, the rate is P1,600 per class.
  • Discounts available for siblings! Please fill out the registration form twice and we will let you know about discounts through email.
  • Advanced payment is required through BPI bank deposit, PayPal (additional fees apply) and credit card (additional fees apply). You’re welcome to sign up and pay for 1 class first to see if your kid will like it then later on sign up and pay for the other classes.

The workspace is air-conditioned so the kids can learn in a comfortable environment. Classes are held in a private residence in Ayala Alabang. For our privacy and to protect the kids, we do not disclose the address unless you sign up.

We often get shy kids that come out of their shell in our classes. They make new friends and leave the bubbliest!

June classes are definitely happening, just sit tight!

Hello folks! We ARE holding cooking classes in Makati and Alabang this June, the schedule isn’t up yet but it will be this week! Thanks for your patience. If you have any special requests feel free to comment on this post and leave a class topic suggestion!

In the meantime here’s a photo of me and the kids last Thursday in Chocolate class. The kids listened to teacher, paid attention in class, and ate the vegan meal I made them (cheesy farfalle – sauce made from puréed squash, cauliflower, and chickpeas) so I rewarded them with homemade baked whole wheat donuts.

Photos of classes so far

I normally don’t post photos of classes on the blog because I’m more active on Facebook… But I decided to post what we’ve cooked in class so far this year, for all you non-Facebook users (and for those who don’t know we exist on Facebook).

As usual, all dishes cooked in class are whole foods, plant-based, nutrient-rich, and gluten-free friendly.

Fantastic Salads 4.0 – held on January 15

Mediterranean chickpea, quinoa and olive salad, waldorf salad with candied walnuts, Thai crunch salad, BBQ black bean salad with ranch dressing

We’re covering wholegrain nori rolls, pan seared tofu with mushroom dashi sauce, miso glazed eggplant and peppers, and green tea ice cream with red bean sauce.

In the kitchen: July and August classes

Some photos of the dishes cooked in the past 2 months’ classes. Some classes were postponed either due to bad weather or lack of students, but we pretty much covered a good number of dishes!

I’ll be on holiday break for a month. Next class will be on the 15th of September. Stay tuned for the schedule of September classes.

Perfection achieved by way of pizza

I can’t begin to describe how awesome that day was. I think Manila needs a vegan pizzeria, stat!

Quinoa cookery

The Facebook interwebz practically imploded when I posted sneak peeks of these dishes. Salad of spinach, quinoa, and mushrooms; Moroccan stuffed peppers; black bean and quinoa croquettes with avocado sauce; vegetable lasagna.

Cross-section of the lasagna.
