Kids in the Kitchen - India’s first comprehensive culinary programme for childen and young adults aged between nine and 16 - will make a comeback. The curriculum has been designed by Rushina Munshaw-Ghildiyal, owner, APB Cook Studio, and is derived from her years of experience teaching children to cook.

The programme will take place between 11am and 2pm between April 24 and 28, 2017. In the first round, the participants, aged between nine and twelve, will be introduced to cooking vegetarian and egg-based dishes. The course fee is Rs 5,500, inclusive of taxes.  

The attendees will begin by learning about kitchen areas and equipment, nutrition, kitchen safety, knife skills and understanding tastes and flavours, before embarking on a cooking schedule that includes learning to prepare breakfasts, main courses, snacks, beverages and desserts.

About the programme
The Kids in the Kitchen programme is structured into comprehensive short courses and individual workshops, with a curriculum that revolves around the art of cooking – an essential life skill. The programme is designed to help children and teenagers build a strong connection to food they are served, and have a greater appreciation for the food they eat.

The program activities also help establish a strong link between cooking and core curriculum subjects like mathematics, science, and language arts. This approach gives the participating children a well-rounded perspective towards food along with a new, practical outlook towards their academic pursuits.

Through this programme, participating children will learn to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy eating habits, while acquiring viable cooking skills that help them become more independent in the kitchen.

They will start with basics of assembly, and subsequently progress through knife skills, nutrition, breakfasts, one-pot meals, savoury bakes, desserts, and many more topics.

At the culmination of the programme, these children will be equipped not just to cook more than 12-15 dishes by themselves, but also use their newfound knowledge to confidently explore more recipes themselves.

The programme will be conducted in the no-fire, kid-friendly kitchen of APB Cook Studio in Andheri East and managed by the experienced staff of the studio.

Said Munshaw-Ghildiyal, “We need to empower our children to cook for their future health and well-being. We do them a disservice if we do not. Studies say that coming generations are going to be the least food-literate, most unhealthy generations.”

“As parents the need of the hour is for the coming generations to learn about food, and how to get it,” she added.

“That said, as serious as the issue is, my Kids in the Kitchen programme has been curated to help children and teenagers connect to food – so they are able to appreciate the food they eat, where it comes from, and hopefully make better choices,” Munshaw-Ghildiyal said.

“I had a lot of fun with the kids in the kitchen last year. I am looking forward to another exciting programme this year,” she added.
