Kids Cooking Series to begin in-person classes


The Farm Cooking School at Gravity Hill Farm, Titusville, N.J., announces its first Kids’ Cooking Series.

The in-person curriculum spans eight weeks of classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 4:45 p.m. starting Feb. 23. It is designed primarily to be attended as a course, however, the 16 classes can also be taken individually.

The curriculum covers knife skills, baking and all methods of indoor cooking. Boys and girls 10-15 years old will enjoy fully participatory classes and in most cases will have food to bring home to eat.

COVID precautions include mask wearing, hand sanitizing and HEPA air filters. (For those preferring virtual classes, the school offers “Kids Cook Dinner” every other Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m.)

The Farm Cooking School, run by cookbook authors and former Gourmet Magazine Food Editors Ian Knauer and Shelley Wiseman, was established first at Tullamore Farms in Stockton, N.J., in 2014, then moved to Gravity Hill Farm in 2017.

The school has been teaching adults how to cook international food while prioritizing organic vegetables from Roots to River Farm, owned and run by Ian’s wife, Malaika Spencer.

For the complete curriculum and to sign up go to For questions, contact Shelley at 646-236-0605 or
