Foodie Kids - Kids cooking classes


Do you have a budding child chef?  Do your kids watch top chef kids? What about the Grace American girl book or movie?  My older one always wants to help cook.   We found this cool place that teaches kids to learn to cook.  Foodie Kids is located at 3818 Far West Blvd #107, Austin, TX 78731.   It is more than a retail store that sells kid’s lunch kits and kid-friendly utensils, safety knives, cookbooks and other fun items like a cotton candy machines.  It also sells coffee and cold drinks as well as kid-friendly snacks.  But the BEST part is the cooking classes and parties.


They have several kinds of parties for varying ages.
  • 1 hour Party for kids 3 and older starting at $325 for 10 kids.  The kids can make mini pizzas, fruit wands and decorate cupcakes. 
  • 1.5 hour parties for kids 6 and older starting at $375 for 10 kids.   The kids get to do a craft like Make Scented Sparkling Soaps and Glitter Lotion as well as the 1 hour party cooking activities.
  • 2 hour parties for kids 8 years old to teens starting at $425 for 10 kids.   At these parties kids can either learn to make sushi, hand crank homemade pasta, make a crocombouche tower, homemade French bread pizzas, fruit parfaits and crepes or decorate a cake with fondant
  • Parties in a Box are also available so you can pick up a box for $175 and have a cooking party in your house.  The box supplies a party for 10 kids.  It includes a cloth apron for the birthday child, plates, napkins, utensils, fresh fruit for kabobs, cupcakes with frosting to decorate them plus a mini cake for the birthday child, pizza dough, cheese and sauce and some colors craft items.

Foodie kids also allows drop ins at the Makery and kids can take a mini cooking lesson and make their own snacks.  The Makery is open from 11-5 Mon – Friday and Saturday 11-4.   Ages for the Makery are 1.5 or older so even the little ones can try.   Prices vary but activities include:
  • Frost and Decorate Giant Cupcake or Cookies
  •  Make Mini Pizzas or Pizza Rolls, Quesadillas, Brown Rice or Pasta Bowls or Cinnamon Rolls
  •  Microwave Mini 3-2-1 Cake
  •  Chocolate- Covered Banana Pops
  •  Frost an 8-inch vanilla cake with fondant candy

When my daughter went she did a private group lesson.  They also offer field trips, camps and holiday workshops.    She made white bean hummus and veggie dippers, tortellini salad and chocolate covered banana pops.  She was able to take the left overs and recipes home with her as well.   We can not wait to try this place out again.
