Creative Cooking Classes for Kids


Let’s Get Cooking!

Culinary Artistas offers creative cooking classes for kids and teens in beautiful Ghirardelli Square. We offer:

We’ve created a safe and fun environment where kids and their families can explore the world of real foods, expand their palates, and forge a lifelong healthy relationship with cooking and eating.


What if I have a picky eater?

We don’t mind! We’ll gently encourage them to explore in a safe and happy environment. Plus, kids are more likely to explore new foods when they’ve cooked it themselves.

How old does my child have to be to participate?

Our classes are geared towards 1.5 to 11 year olds. If your child is younger than four, they will need a grown-up with them. For children ages four and up, classes are drop-off.

Are your classes safe?

Absolutely. Older kids have a knife safety class on the first day we meet and use kid appropriate knives. Our kitchen does not have any open flames and kids work under supervision.

What about food allergies?

Our registration process allows you to list allergies and we will adapt our curriculum to special needs. However, our kitchen routinely works with foods that are allergens and if your child has life threatening allergies, we would recommend against taking classes at Culinary Artistas as we cannot guarantee complete absence of allergens.

Do kids eat the food they make?


Where do your ingredients come from?

Philosophically, we believe in the tenets of the Slow Food movement,and we want to be a part of our local food network. We secure seasonal, local and organic ingredients, to the best of our ability.
