Cooking Club

    Cooking Club Goes Global in January. Join Cooking Club as we celebrate cuisine and cultures from around the world. Each week we will "visit" a different country and prepare a recipe popular in that country. Classes will focus on preparing simple and delicious meals, trying new things, and having fun! We will meet Wednesdays, immediately after school until 4:50pm in the Art Room at Paddock Elementary. 

    Session Two: "Fun Recipes for Winter Days"

    Cooking Club takes the chill out of winter with warming recipes like a hot and hearty breakfast, warming soup, gourmet cupcake decorating, and delicious muffins. Then the kids take over!
