Overview: Our new weekly cooking series provides our students the opportunity to connect with others, learn new skills, discover new foods and gather together to prepare their own dinner each week.  Limited-size classes are full of excitement and connection, each class culminating with a hearty, healthy dinner.  This class will be the highlight of your week!  Whether your child's dream is to be a chef or they simply want to try something new, they'll develop knife skills, learn about sauce-making, and perfect their seasoning skills as we work our way towards kitchen independence. Get ready for some kitchen fun as we take the guesswork out of what's for dinner.

Logistics: Students will depart SJP campus at 3pm via school transportation, driven by a SJP chaperone, to the TasteBuds Beverly location (131 Rantoul Street, Retail #3, MA, 01915).   The program will begin at 3:30pm without a SJP chaperone, under the supervision of TasteBuds Kitchen staff.

All students will need to be picked up by a caregiver by 5:30pm at the TasteBuds Beverly location. 
Please Note: An additional charge will be applied for late pickups.
