My daughter LOVES The Creative Kitchen cooking classes! Cricket and her staff have a way of communicating with the kids in a language that they can understand – and, as a result, the kids actually get excited about green beans and bell peppers and other healthy foods. I really love that the foods that are prepared are healthy; my daughter really loves that they are tasty and colorful. I really like how Cricket takes the time to discuss each ingredient – describes the color, the letter is starts with, etc. When I come home from work, my two daughters sit up on the kitchen counter with me and actually want to HELP me cook dinner. They are very interested in trying all the raw ingredients and in helping to measure and pour and stir. I attribute much of my little chef’s skills to The Creative Kitchen! Now, I only hope someday soon Pearl will start cooking ME breakfast in bed on the weekends…..
