Here at YUM Chefs, we think cooking and eating should be a joyful experience! Our kitchen is a safe space where students can build confidence, grow community, and learn more about food and food culture. We work from seasonal, produce driven recipes to create delicious and nutritious meals with young people. In our hands-on classes, children are encouraged to try new foods from around the world, engage all of their senses, and have a fun time.
