Cooking With Kristi

Cooking with Kristi is a six-part on-demand cooking video series. Participants will have access to the videos through a private Facebook group. Upon registration, you will receive a welcome email with a link to the Facebook group (you will need to request permission to join), PDFs of all the recipes, and links to additional videos on kitchen safety and other important topics.

The recipes included in this series are ones that youth as young as 10 years old should be able to prepare on their own after some adult instruction on knife safety. Youth under 10 years old can also make the recipes with adult assistance.

Our young cooks will:

  • make some creative, tasty, and economical new foods

  • learn about basic kitchen safety and sanitation

  • learn a variety of cooking techniques and culinary terms

  • Participants will have the opportunity to show off their completed dishes within the private Facebook group and will earn a chance at winning a prize by doing so.*

* All youth who post pictures of all six recipes by April 1, 2021 will be entered into a drawing for a prize package of fun kitchen items! Participants who confirm they have completed the survey included in the initial welcome email will get an additional entry into the drawing. There will be up to 5 winners.

Registration for Cooking With Kristi is open.

Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on March 31, 2021.
