Cooking Programs

Virtual Cooking Class with Teacher Abby is an engaging introduction to cooking at home; perfect for chefs of all ability levels!

Sunflower Hill Cooking Classes are interactive, live, virtual classes taught via Zoom that build independent living skills through cooking discussion, teacher demonstration, and group activity. Participants have the option to cook along with step-by-step guidance during class time (independently or with a caregiver’s assistance), or simply view the class cooking demonstration for future at-home practice. All participating chefs will be provided weekly recipes, tips, and safe kitchen skill demonstrations, along with modifications for skill-levels, to encourage at-home practice independent from class. All sessions will focus on healthy eating habits and will include food creation to enjoy at the close of each class.

2023 Winter Cooking Class

This winter, join Teacher Abby for our popular, virtual Cooking Class series for an 8-week session. Perfect for budding chefs of all abilities, this class focuses on developing skills in the kitchen through demonstrations, practice, and repetition. Participants will follow along with Teacher Abby as they prepare a recipe step-by-step with guided instruction, and engage in lessons that teach cooking basics such as measuring ingredients, practicing safe knife skills, and cooking with heat. Recipes will be tailored to the session theme. Modifications are offered for all skill levels and diets. Participants are encouraged to cook along with their support staff/caregiver if they need additional 1:1 support. Each class requires a minimum of three (3) participants and is limited to a maximum of ten (10) participants.
