Very Vera School

VeryVera School was founded in 2002 with the promise to introduce children to the opportunities for their involvement in the kitchen and to educate them in a fun environment with peers. The foundation of the school emphasizes proper techniques not only in the kitchen but at the dinner table. VeryVera School focuses on basic principles of food preparation, etiquette, table manners and hospitality. Children are assigned to groups of six and are exposed to the kitchen, the prep room, craft room and the dining area with adult instruction in each area. The Summer Camp experience goes more in depth on techniques that are introduced in our Saturday classes. The Certificate of Achievement received at the close of the week is a giant step in getting your child introduced to enjoying the kitchen and being comfortable with good manners and etiquette.

Are you looking for a team building exercise or fun activity to do with friends? Adult Cooking Classes are a great option! Private group classes are also offered upon request.

Summer 2015 will begin our 12th year and we are very excited about our new location, The Cottage (2708 Wheeler Rd.
