Publix school puts kids in the kitchen

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

FOX 13's April Kellogg continues her series on what to do with the kids while they're out of school.

Kids in the kitchen can get awfully messy, but it can also be fun.

Chef Rich Norris teaches cooking at the Publix Apron's Kids School, where they learn to do it all.

"They enjoy it. Most of the kids that come. They really enjoy it; that's why they're here," he said.

After all, when kids are in the kitchen, they really are the chefs. They learn to do it all at the school: Cleaning, mixing, baking –  you name it.

"It's a good opportunity to bond with your child in the kitchen, and share something together – create something together," Norris said.

Norris teaches the classes during summer and winter breaks when kids are out of school. He said everything they do in class can be done in any home and any kitchen.

"We typically, we will see that day the kids will go shopping with their parents, and they'll make whatever they made in class for dinner that night for them," he said.

For starters, he suggests lay out the ingredients, follow the instructions, and dive in hands first.

"Everybody needs to know how to cook," he said.

Maybe next time it might be mom or dad asking, "What's cooking?"
