Taste Adventures

Elementary kids preparing food in after school enrichment class

Wednesdays (8 Weeks)
April 18, 2018 – June 6, 2018
Instructor: Harriet Trezevant, MHEd

Daily, each and every one of us embarks on our own taste adventure. Whether we share food together or eat alone, every bite is an opportunity to explore the world through flavor, texture, color, aroma and even sound. Taste Adventures culinary programs offer:

  • Active, hands-on food preparation using high-quality, locally-sourced, organic ingredients, whenever possible
  • Guided taste explorations
  • Time to ask lots of questions and help find answers—What happens if I mix these two together? How would I describe this flavor? What does this feel like when I bite into it? How about when I let it melt in my mouth? Why do I think this is gross? What makes something yummy? How can I fix this if it’s not coming out as I planned? And so many more.

Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, bring an apron if you have one, and bring a container to take home the leftovers!

Cost: $225
Minimum 5 students, maximum 10 students
Grades K–2: 2:15 – 3:15
Grades 3–5: 3:30 – 4:30

Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, until the maximum number of students for each is reached. A wait list may be created if a class fills. If any enrolled child decides to drop out, families on the wait list will be notified by the second class of the session. If your child is enrolled and decides after the first class that they do not wish to participate, you will receive a refund or credit for 75% of the remaining class tuition. You must inform the Extended Care Director before the second class to receive this refund. No refunds are available after the second class of the session.
