A Brand New On-Demand Cooking Class for Kids

SideChef and Step Stool Chef collaborated to provide a fun and interactive on-demand cooking class made for kids by kids. Designed to help empower kids to become chefs in their own kitchens, these classes teach basic cooking skills, tips, and tools that makes cooking easier and fun for kids. Learning how to cook is a great way to build kid confidence, independence, and empowerment, as well as reinforce math and science skills. Distance learning has become a reality for many kids across the globe and we are cooking at home more than we ever have. We are immensely proud to announce Step Stool Chef Cooking School for Kids, Brought to You By SideChef Premium. Developed with kids in mind, these lessons can be completed at home, on vacation, and at your own pace. This is an excellent learning tool that the whole family can enjoy.

About Step Stool Chef

Meet Toria and Julian, the mother-son team dedicated to developing yummy kid-friendly recipes. Their cooking journey started on Julian’s 3rd birthday. As Toria prepared to make the cake, Julian asked to make his own cake. Toria quickly realized that kids can rise to the occasion once given a chance. So with the assistance of a step stool and a little help from mom, Julian did a great job making his cake. He was beaming with such a sense of pride and confidence that this inspired the creation of Step Stool Chef — a platform to inspire the same pride and confidence Julian felt in other kids all over the world.

About the Classes

The on-demand cooking classes are broken down into two class modules. Within both modules, not only will kids learn essential cooking skills, but also how to integrate math, science, and reading into the overall cooking experience. These classes are designed to be easy to follow, informative, and most importantly, entertaining for kids — a fantastic component to add to distance learning and homeschooling curriculums.

How to Access Step Stool Chef Cooking School for Kids, Brought to You By SideChef Premium

These on-demand cooking classes for kids have been added to the SideChef Premium experience. To access the classes, simply start your 7-day free trial to SideChef Premium (thereafter $4.99/month or $49.99/year).
