It’s like having a private chef but for kids… the pumpkin ravioli was to die for”

– Andrea, Mom

Samantha – thank you so much for a wonderful evening! We had such a great time cooking with you!  You are so helpful and terrific with children. Alex can’t stop talking about how much fun it was. Thank you for all of your time and energy and hopefully we’ll see you again sometime!”

– Cindy, Mom

Thank you for teaching us to cook. The food was really good. You should be on a tv cooking show.”

– Jansyn, age 9

We love Kitchen Kid! We appreciate Samantha’s carefully considered curriculum featuring tasty, seasonal, multicultural, and nutritious treats, sometimes introduced by a story or inspired by the children’s creativity with secret ingredients. Her teachers thoughtfully and skillfully guide our young chefs who take this very fun class!”

Dear Samantha, Thank you so much for cooking with me. I had so much fun. I hope we can do it again. With cooking skills, Alexandra”

– Alexandra, age 9

I wanted to send my ‘Thank Yous’ again as the girls literally had their hands in it, making the meal of burritos and turkey tacos. The food was happily healthy and oh so tasty. The girls loved you so much; your patience is truly your virtue and we were truly blessed to have you help us celebrate T’aira’s 10th birthday.”

– Tamara, Mom

With the many years that we have had Kitchen Kid here at Virginia Avenue Park, toddlers, school-aged children and adults all alike love the classes we offer. The instructors are great, the food is yummy and the demand is high, that is why we love to have Kitchen Kid be a part of our program year in and out!!!”

We love [culinary coach] Lynn. One afternoon before vacation the kids were particularly wild.  The way she handled them was great… she was so patient, so kind. She treats her students with respect. She engaged them, made food fun for them, and is entertaining.”

– Penny Ellers, Program Director, Westland School

A big THANK YOU to you and Katie for a great birthday party for Alexandra. After you left, she looked at me and said, ‘Mommy, I had such a good time at my party. Thank you so much.’ Literally brought tears to my eyes.”

– Randa, Mom

The kids had a GREAT time at our in-home summer camp. Thank you for making it work.”

– Nina, Mom

Caroline and all the kids had a wonderful party. Thank you again.”

– Samantha, Mom

Our kids aged between 2-5 thoroughly enjoy the cooking classes and are very proud to share what they learn in each class with their parents at home. It teaches them not only about nutrition and how to try new foods but independence and patience. The most fun is getting to try their creations at the end of each class. Teamwork at it’s finest. We love Kitchen Kid.”

– Renae Plant Director, Camelot Kids Child Development Center

The teachers are excellent. The PreK children love her [culinary coach Jill]; she captures their attention.”
