U Family Kitchen Lab


U Family Kitchen Lab is an experience designed to inspire “power food” cooking and foster a positive relationship in the kitchen for families. U School Cooking Teacher Vanessa offers two unique experiences for families to join at her Sunday afternoon U Family Kitchen Lab.

  1. Family Classes – Children and family adults attend together for a class and learn to make delicious “power food” snacks. There will be a mid-way opportunity during class for children and families to play in the U School outdoor area or gym.
  2. Adult Classes – An adults only class desigend to provide a framework to cook delicious, “power food”, low-stress meals.

Each hour long Sunday afternoon class will be hands-on and will involve tasting and taking “mindful bites” along the way. At the end of each class we will eat what we’ve made and Vanessa will provide recipe frameworks that participants can take home and implement in their own creative ways.

If you have any questions about U Family Kitchen Lab please email Vanessa.
