  • Take a break with Alice and Erica, spending some quality time enjoying a family meal during the hustle and bustle of the holidays… prepared this time by the youngest ones in the family! We will learn how to put on a complete holiday meal from start to finish- food prep, cooking, table setting, and presentation. Chef Alice and Erica will work with young cooks to prepare a 4-course feast of braised leek and ricotta crostinis, swiss chard gratin, braised pork shoulder ragu, and an olive oil cake with a lingonberry or cranberry compote. Parents and siblings are invited to come at 3pm with their appetites! All ingredients are locally sourced by the 21 Acres Center. This class is intended for kids ages 7-12.

    Class prices include a meal. Accommodations for dietary restrictions upon request.

    Difficulty Level: 1-2 fork; some previous cooking experience at home or in a 21 Acres cooking class recommended.

    Instructors: Alice Carli & Erica Weisman of Seattle Cucina Cooking School

    Co-founders of the Seattle Cucina Cooking School, Alice and Erica, teach in local schools, community centers and after-school programs in the greater Seattle Area. They lead creative, hands-on classes to improve students’ nutrition, how they relate to their families and community, and how they participate in sustainable food systems. They joined 21 Acres’ culinary program in 2018.

    Alice received her public health degree from the University of Washington and is interested in the intersection of cooking, nutrition, and childhood development. She’s been an avid cook for the past 10 years, especially for friends and family!
