Well,well,well – We are grateful to all who have come out to become empowered through hands on cooking!   Masks are all the rage here and we have had fun distancing, learning and cooking together – 6 feet apart.
As Edible Education approaches 10 years in business, we are truly inspired by the stay at home/ working parents – it’s quite the Jenga puzzle.  Our motto continues this fall – if school is closed – we are open.
In the coming weeks, we are planning new fall time classes to work around the online learning plan for area schools. We have expanded our space, socially distance each table and work in small 6 – 8 person classes with individual tools and tables for all.   Please check out our new standards and keep an eye out for new programming.  
                               Summer is in full swing – we loved to see you cook with us!
