Private Teen Cooking Parties

by Sara Kelly, RD, LD

Attention parents of the future chefs of America: does your child have an interest in cooking? The staff at Hy-Vee would like to expand and encourage your child’s culinary skills! We can host a fun, private cooking-themed birthday party for your child and their closest friends. Check out these photos from a recent party we hosted. These boys learned from one of our chefs how to properly chop fresh vegetables to make a salsa for turkey tacos. They also made chocolate pies and smoothies. For younger children, we can host pizza and cookie decorating parties. Do you have an idea for a private class? The sky’s the limit! Just let us know, and, chances are, we can accommodate your request.
E-mail Sara Kelly at to book your private class!
