Empowered Cooking For Kids

camps, Birthday Parties & School Programs in the Bay Area

Our Mission

To inspire and empower children to have a positive relationship with food. By cooking together, we develop a common language, create lasting memories, and set our young cooks on a lifetime path of health and fun in the kitchen. We cook wholesome and multicultural recipes that expose kids to new flavors, develop motor skills, incorporate various cultures, and ultimately, celebrate our time together around the table.

Our Classes & Offerings

Each of our classes, parties and camps are designed to ignite the creative spark in your child’s eyes and teach an intuitive understanding of cooking they can grow with.

Seasonal Camps

At Our Ghirardelli Square 
Studio in SF

Cooking Camps are weeklong and single-day programs for kids ages 4-10 years old. Camps run in summer as well as year-round during school breaks & closures. Each camp is creatively themed, like Global Goodies and STEAM in the Kitchen, to invite campers to engage with their food as they learn and laugh.

Adults have the option to join the fun & rent our front lounge and/or outdoor parklet for their own gathering space. Best of all, we take care of all the details so you can relax and enjoy the day too.

School Programs

In parternship with Your School

Culinary Artistas offers after-school classes for kids and field trips to our Ghirardelli Square studio. Not only do kids learn cooking skills and try new foods, but they get to connect and laugh with their peers. Our school programs teach kids to cook intuitively, an approach that encourages kids to feel empowered both in the kitchen and in their lives outside of school.
