Kids (ages 9-14) are in for a treat today as they pretend they’re in France and learn the art of making French Tarts! That’s right… from scratch!  And you’re in luck, because we have the perfect person to show you how it’s done!

Experienced culinary instructor, Chef Natasha Goellner is a graduate of The French Culinary Institute, past owner of Mulberry & Mott and currently the Pastry Chef at The Antler Room, so you can bet your whisk she knows a thing or two about making delicious tarts.

She will lead today’s budding chefs in an interactive baking basics class where she shares tips and secrets while teaching essential baking skills, techniques and methods.

The kids will learn the fundamentals of making Sucre Dough (Pâte sucrée) a sweet, crumbly French tart dough that’s the perfect foundation for tarts. Then, you’ll learn how to choose the right fruit, how to temper, and to create two tarts - French Apple Tart and Chocolate Tart made with fresh Chocolate Ganache. Ooh la la! 

You’ll get plenty of hands-on cooking time next to Chef Natasha, as you pull it all together to make your own perfect tart. Won’t you be fancy-schmancy?

·       We encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver, sign it and either 1) scan and email it to heather@kcculinary.comor 2) bring it to class with your student.  Without an appropriately signed Waiver your child will not be allowed to attend class.  We are sorry but we cannot make any exceptions to this rule.  Also note that If someone other than the parent signs a Waiver, they will need a legal document to be presented that shows without question that they have the legal authority to sign a Waiver on behalf of your child at that time.

What To Wear To Class:  For safety reasons, we also recommend that students wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.

If Your Child Plans To Attend Class With Someone Else,  For On-Site Classes, when your child arrives, please ask them to check in with our Class Assistant who will give them information as to where they will be seated.  We will be arranging our classrooms to allow for social distancing.  In order to comply with governmental orders and for the protection of our guests and staff, your child must wear a mask when here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City. If your child is planning to sit next to someone attending with them, we would suggest arriving at least 20 minutes prior to the same start time of the class so that we can address that request.  Both students would need to be comfortable with the request to be seated together. Thank you! 

Only Registered Students Allowed In The Classroom During Class:  This is so your child will have the best possible experience and the instructors have their full attention.  Parents should plan to pick up their students at the end of the advertised hours for their class.

Important Information Regarding Children With Special Needs:  Our cooking instructors are skilled in teaching culinary education at an age appropriate level.  Several of our instructors even have early childhood and teaching background and certification.  However, we are not equipped to work with, nor are these classes designed for, children who may have special needs, issues with focus, or difficulty with sitting still to listen and concentrate on the instructor or issues with relating to other students in a classroom setting.  When we encounter a student who requires significant special attention, the experience for the other students suffers.  While our class and cooking camps are well staffed, we just don’t have the staff to be able to allocate someone to work directly with your child for the entire class.  Should we identify a situation where we believe a student falls within one or more of these categories, we will be contacting you to pick up your students.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to issue a refund for all or any part of the class or camp fees.   Please feel free to call us to discuss any questions or concerns that you feel should be discussed in advance of your child’s class.  Please be aware of our 3-day cancellation policy.
