Ann Arbor Cooks is offering exciting cooking adventures (and hands-on kitchen time) for kids this summer. Starting July 30 and continuing through August 3, children and teens can learn how to make healthy food choices during hands-on cooking classes geared towards recipes rich in veggies, fruits, vitamins and whole grains. Recipes for all meals of the day will be included, especially the ever-important (and rarely nutritious) dessert. Kids will learn to prepare things like fruit and yogurt parfaits or black bean quesadillas and Mexican quinoa soup. They’ll even get their hands into a guiltless pleasure dessert of peaches and cream smoothies, chocolate-dipped fruit skewers and more. It's a chance for kids to get their hands messy (without turning mom and dad’s kitchen into chaos)!
Ages 8-15. $200 per child. Registration required. Ann Arbor Cooks, 5060 Jackson Rd., Ann Arbor. 10am- 1pm Monday thru Thursday. 734-645-1030. www.annarborcooks.com
