The studio is aimed at the youngest (two and a half years old) to adults. Fernando said: “You can still be 99 and have a great time at Flour Power.”
The school has two kitchens, one of which is ADA compliant. Much like a kitchen one would have at home, they use residential-grade appliances and foods that can be purchased at local grocery stores. Recipes are given after class in the hope that the children can reproduce them at home.
“We aim to teach life skills in a fun and engaging place,” said co-owner Kimberly.
“My kids loved their class at Flour Power! My kids are a bit older so sometimes hard to please but both had a great time. The instructors were so engaging that none wanted me to leave. The pizza was really good and they both managed to make it and drool so they were happy! We will definitely be back,” mother Michelle Erste wrote.
Recently added classes are 2-hour adult classes called ‘Sip and Stir’ and a teen chef (ages 13-18) that focus on skills rather than cooking. Summer camp classes are now open for registration.
Once a month, a special needs cooking class is offered for children with dietary restrictions. “We have kids who are gluten-free and need an option to learn how to cook recipes. It’s something that actually stems from our franchise founder having a child on the spectrum.
The next Sip n’ Stir will be on March 29. Come with a friend, husband or boyfriend and bring your own beer or wine. The menu will consist of creamy lemon chicken pasta with roasted Brussels sprouts, plus moist oatmeal raisin cookies.
Corporate party events divide adults into teams, each getting a kitchen and “competing like an iron chef,” Kimberly added.
“You can make a mess and we do all the cleaning for you – the thing parents love the most,” Fernando said.
