For Young Chefs

The Farm Cooking School in Titusville announces its first Kids’ Cooking Series. The in-person curriculum spans eight weeks of classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 4:45 p.m. starting February 23. It is designed primarily to be attended as a course, however, the 16 classes can also be taken individually. The curriculum covers knife skills, baking, all methods of indoor cooking, and more. Kids ages 10-15 will enjoy fun, fully participatory classes and in most cases will have food to bring home to eat. Covid precautions include mask wearing, hand sanitizing and HEPA air filters.

The Farm Cooking School, run by cookbook authors and former Gourmet Magazine Food Editors Ian Knauer and Shelley Wiseman, was established first at Tullamore Farms in Stockton in 2014, then moved to Gravity Hill Farm in 2017. The school has been successfully teaching adults how to cook international food while prioritizing organic vegetables from Roots to River Farm, owned and run by Ian’s wife, Malaika Spencer.

Individual classes are $75 each and the entire series is offered at $1,020. For the complete curriculum and to sign up go to For questions, contact Shelley at 646-236-0605 or
