Description

Ages 8 to 12 Ancient maritime trade routes — the Silk Roads — carried flavorful spices from different regions in the Middle East west into Europe and east into Asia, where they profoundly influenced local cuisines. This region is full of unique flavors and Kausar is here to introduce them to young chefs. They’ll cook along and learn about the diverse foods and traditions passed down through centuries. Kids will kickstart their palates by learning to season dishes using spices and pick up lasting skills like working with dough, making and stuffing different breads, and cool tricks and techniques that build confidence in the kitchen.

With dairy, eggs, gluten, and meat.
