Want to cook like the celebrities? In this fun, fast-paced cooking competition, Chef Ann Butler lets students compete to find out who is the best in the class. Parents are in the audience cheering them on. Then everyone eats — and takes home the recipes of the dishes the kids prepared.
“Even if kids don’t take home the top prize, this is definitely a case where everyone wins because they are learning to cook and eat real food,” says Butler.
