Letter from the Director

Hello and Happy New Year!

First, I want to introduce myself to those who do not know me. I am Lindsey Brumlow, the VeryVera Cooking Class & Camp Director. Second, I want to let you know that you can now register for our 2016 Winter Series of Saturday Cooking Classes. We have great things in store-new recipes, crafts, and loads of fun-so you do not want to miss this opportunity for your young ones!

You may have noticed that we have changed the location of our Saturday Classes. VeryVera has partnered with Immaculate Conception School and their Special Needs Program to participate in some exciting events. (Pictured below are photos of the VeryVera team baking Christmas cookies with a few of the students.) This is a thrilling and rewarding community project for VeryVera, especially for owner and founder Vera whose granddaughter Jane has special needs.

Through our participation in this program in December 2015, we found Immaculate Conception School to be the perfect environment for our cooking school-a large, industrial kitchen and ample space-allowing us to spend even more time in the kitchen! We know you are as thrilled as we are concerning the new location and all it and the VeryVera Cooking Classes have to offer.

Looking forward to seeing new and familiar faces!

Lindsey Brumlow

Harnessing Creativity & Imagination with Cooking

"Cooking with kids is not just about ingredients, recipes, and cooking. It's about harnessing imagination, empowerment, and creativity."
- Guy Fieri

I love this quote by Guy Fieri and could not have said it better myself. These are my same thoughts about the VeryVera Summer Cooking Camp for Kids. Yes, campers learn to bake, cook, plate, set a table-etiquette and life skills-but they learn so, so much more.

Space is limited, so register your child / grandchild today for VeryVera Cooking Camp. Ages 6-14: week-long Summer sessions. *Please sign up using the DEPOSIT product and pay the BALANCE DUE the week before camp. (Or pay for both at once, if you'd like!)

2014 June Cooking Camps Report Card

How did the June Sessions of Cooking Camp go? Beyond what I could have imagined--they were absolutely splendid! I have received so many kind notes and emails, including this one from Angel, the mother of Kayla who was one of our VeryVera Summer Cooking Camp Campers of the Week! This email just warmed my heart. 



"We are very proud of Kayla and her accomplishments . . . Kayla wants to be a chef and own her own restaurant so this really inspires her . . .Thanks so much for continuing to organize this camp. She really enjoys it. We will definitely see you next year in the Advanced Class."

I just cannot express how much joy I receive working with and teaching these kids about cooking, and how proud I am of all of my campers. Congrats to you, boys and girls, for a job well done! Each and every one of you received an A+ in my book.
