What's Cooking?

A Healthy and Creative Snack-making Program for Teens!

In September, we'll start off with some easy basics by using as many ingredients as possible from the Kitsilano Community Centre Garden.   Pre-teens can sign up for a regular Friday afternoon snack-making class with Noah Thrush.

Youth can really get their chef skills on by making their own pizzas as well as learning the basics of baking, when we'll make home-made granola bars, muffins and cookies.
