Taste Buds Kitchen is the premier culinary entertainment experience for kids, families and adults. We host cooking classes and events for ages 2-99 in our bright and spacious kitchen studio that's custom-designed for kids by day and is adult BYOB by night.

When school is closed, we're open! We offer half-day cooking camps on every school holiday and all summer long.

Younger chefs (age 4-8) focus on the fundamentals of measuring, mixing, and working safely in the kitchen with short breaks for stories and kitchen games during a half-day experience offered in the morning from 9:00am-12:00pm. Tweens (age 9-13) hone in on more advanced cooking and baking techniques in the afternoon from 1:00-4:00pm along with recipe prep work, sanitation and knife skills with fun culinary challenges. Registration for summer 2021 is by the week only. Capacity is limited to maintain proper social distance and face coverings are required.

Each week is a new culinary adventure that explores a new theme and unique menu, creating two to three recipes each day - both savory and sweet.

In addition to our camps, TBK offers after-school cooking semester classes, weekly family classes, monthly kids' night out and teen workshops as well as field trips, private lessons and birthday parties. Our public adult workshops make the perfect date night or couples/girls' night out and our private events are ideal for ladies luncheons, bachelorette, bridal and baby showers, team building and corporate groups, or and any occasion worth celebrating.
