Cooking with Kids is proud and fortunate to be part of Santa Fe’s world-class culinary community. Superchefs donate their time and talent in cooking classes and school cafeterias, inspiring a new generation of chefs and healthy eaters. Restaurants, cooking schools, businesses, and local culinary organizations organize fundraising events, donate food for cooking classes and tasting lessons, and help spread the word about Cooking with Kids.

Cooking with Kids Superchefs

It’s a big deal when a Superchef visits a cooking class! Kids are excited to work alongside our local culinary celebrities, who roll up their sleeves and bring home the message of healthy eating to eager junior chefs.  Superchefs also donate their time and talent in school cafeterias, championing the growing efforts of public school cafeterias to use local food and cook from scratch. And in the larger community, Superchefs are Cooking with Kids ambassadors! They strengthen our ties in the culinary community, help with fundraising events, and spread the word about Cooking with Kids.
