Are you running out of ideas to keep your kids entertained? Tracy Cates might have the perfect solution for you. With over 30 years of experience in the culinary field as a chef, instructor, professional caterer, and many other white fluffy hats, Tracy is now directing her expertise into designing fun classes to get kids excited in the kitchen.
Tracy first established the COOK! Programs in 2009 to lead hands-on cooking classes for Bay Area youth. Traditionally, the courses last six weeks during summer break and the curriculum works for kids between ages 9 and 18 to help them learn culinary basics, recipe interpretation, and knife safety. Her focus is to help kids develop confidence through a collaborative and supportive environment, curated expertly by Tracy.
The COOK! Programs are not only pivoting to provide online cooking classes for kids and their families, each Friday they are going to provide a recipe to test out at home as a family.
We are thrilled to bring you a taste of Tracy’s ingenuity each week as she helps you navigate the kitchen with your kids!
