subjects, (such as math, science, geography, and culture), and important social values, (such as cooperation, sustainability, and self-reliance), with culinary concepts (like palate development and knife skills) and nutrition education (think fresh vs. processed foods and where food comes from). Chefstar is the ideal way for schools and other organizations to cook up enthusiasm for the kitchen classroom. Our inter-disciplinary and hands-on cooking classes are fun, delicious, and healthy!
