Are you looking for a unique after-school or supplementary education experience for your child? Then Chef Dad’s Table is for you!

Your child will join our talented instructors in a professional kitchen as we explore and learn about types of foods, preparation methods, recipe math, kitchen skills, weights and measures, sanitation and safety, knife skills, baking basics, holidays and international cuisine and cultures, plus so much more!

 

Students don’t even realize they are learning. For them it’s just about having fun, making friends and eating great food! But when ingredients are measured they are learning math skills.  When baking, they discover chemical reactions occur.  And learning about the cuisine and culture of different regions of the world is a terrific geography lesson.  

 

We provide a safe and engaging place for our students to learn and have fun. Whether it is to strengthen their academic skills or to explore their creative side, Chef Dad’s Table offers children a variety of extra-curricular classes and activities, both in-person and virtually online. Our classes are held in clean, Covid-19 safe classrooms and kitchen labs in Broomall, Delaware County.  We currently enroll students in three age groups; ages 3 to 5, 6 to 10, and 11 to 16.     

 

Classes meet every week, for two hours. The class fees are $40 each, plus there is a semester registration fee of $50. Private cooking classes are available and can be customized to a student’s needs and interests. 

 

Best of all, children are encouraged to bring home samples and leftovers of their creations to share with the family!

Mission Statement

We continually strive to provide engaging educational classes and activities in a safe environment for our students while instilling the importance of giving back to the community. Whether it is to strengthen their academic skills or to explore their creative side, Chef Dad’s Table offers our participants a variety of extra-curricular classes and activities, both in-person and virtually online. We teach lifelong skills, build confidence and self-esteem, and introduce our students to a variety of vocations and opportunities that are available to them later in life. 

Chef Dad’s Table provides hands-on Vocational and Food Service Skills Training as well as Family and Consumer Science education to children and adults.  Students enrolled in our classes learn to be savvy consumers and acquire kitchen skills that they carry with them throughout life. We educate about food insecurity with the hope that we can help alleviate this hardship that affects so many. We partner with houses of worship and work in the community to help those who are food insecure.

We do all this while making sure our classes are fun and our students enjoy themselves.  We spend a lot of time tasting food and sampling our creations. Besides educating, our classes provide a warm and captivating opportunity for our students to build friendships and learn to work in teams. We have talented and knowledgeable instructors that work closely with and mentor our students. Our classes offer an inclusive opportunity for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).   We do offer scholarships and financial arrangements and we work with various organizations to facilitate donation drives. 

Learning a skill set and having the necessary knowledge helps individuals make better informed and educated decisions that will affect their life. We want to help children, teens, and adults make great decisions regarding their Food, Family, and Consumer Science choices.
