Becky’s Mindful Kitchen Cooking School
Escape to a countryside oasis at Becky’s Mindful Kitchen and Cooking School, where joy, laughter and delicious foods can always be found. This is a Cooking School unlike any you have ever seen before, where processed foods are trumped by real foods and traditional preparations. Becky sources all of her produce, meats, egg and dairy from local farms who share her philosophy of traditional grass farming practices, respect of animals and the environment. Located in a beautifully updated 1900 farm house surrounded by woods and wildlife, Becky’s Mindful Kitchen is the perfect getaway for a few hours. With dairy goats comes new baby goats every spring which is great fun for kids (and adults alike) to come and visit. You can enjoy the meal you prepared in the vaulted screened porch while watching the goats and chickens roam about the green timber. Local farms are highlighted in classes and Becky invites farmers to contact her to find out how to get involved.
This spring, students will find themselves walking through large gardens to gather fresh organic produce, herbs and collect eggs from pastured chickens. Local, raw and organic honey will also be available for a discount to all students.
Summer cooking camps for kids offer days of fun filled with cooking, free play outside with the goats and chickens and lessons in healthy eating. Many camps are structured around kid favorite cooking shows including, Chopped, Bake Off, Top Chef, and more.
Becky’s Mindful Kitchen Cooking School goes above and beyond a normal cooking class by offering a beautiful setting to enjoy the food you prepare. Personalized classes are available for individuals and groups, perfect for business Christmas parties, bridal parties, anniversaries, birthdays, and family reunions.
Located between Solon, North Liberty, Iowa City and just 20 minutes from Cedar Rapids.
