Le Gruyère AOP and The Creative Kitchen teaching kids in N.Y.C.

Le Gruyère AOP is teaming up with The Creative Kitchen to teach children about food and how to cook in a fun, safe, and educational manner. This event will be held at Cocoon in Tribeca, NYC.


The Creative Kitchen teaches children about food and how to cook in a fun, safe, and educational manner. 

The goal of The Creative Kitchen is to foster a healthy relationship between children and food through cooking. The Creative Kitchen’s cooking classes are about more than just learning to cook. During our activities, children strengthen their motor skills, self-esteem, socialization, cultural understanding, teamwork, independence, and personal responsibility. Our cooking classes also enhance other traditional disciplines, such as reading, mathematics, science, social sciences, nutrition, music, art, history, and geography. The Creative Kitchen’s tried-and-true lesson plans have been developed and implemented since 1999 for conducting cooking classes in a creative and dynamic learning environment of delicious exploration.

This event will be held at Coccon Space on 316 Greenwich Street, New York, NY 10013.
