Chef Toni's Cooking Adventures (C.T.C.A) is the premiere farm-to-table cooking school for children ages 2-16 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
As parents we all want our children to be healthy, right? Right! Cooking empowers children with
independence and responsibility for what they eat. Nourishing food not only makes a child healthier, it improves school performance, and is a critical component in growth and development. So how do we get our children to think so too? That's where we come in! At C.T.C.A our number one goal and philosophy is to teach children where food comes from; to give them an early introduction to kitchen safety, basic cooking skills and healthy cooking techniques while fostering key areas of development such as socialization, task-completion and the basics of nutrition through imaginative culinary adventures. Students at C.T.C.A love the idea of becoming a top “junior chef” by creating and practicing positive food smarts from what they've learned. Chef Toni's Cooking Adventures has been featured in TimeOut NY Kids, Macaroni Kids, Mom Trends and Appetite For Good to name a few.Chef Toni's Cooking Adventures continues to reign as the first and only cooking school for children on the Upper West Side.
The adventure that C.T.C.A offers is truly remarkable, as the schools signature themed Cook & Play Saturday class could easily be a Boston Tea party where dress up is required and proper etiquette is in place, a Safari adventure, or even an Apple Pickin’ Showdown. Chef Toni's signature tagline “Cook, Eat, & Play with Love” is displayed upon entry as chefs make their way into the room.
