We’re a culinary social club for families that started in 2017 in a Brooklyn storefront. We now create interactive online classes available to a global audience that empower kids to get dinner on the table. We have taught thousands of hours of culinary instruction across the country and the rave reviews from parents and press have been pouring in. TheKitchn.com said our online classes are “Simply The Best Thing Going For Kids Right Now.”
*
With the proper pre-class prep, our lessons are designed for students to be able to cook without parental participation, but parents know their children best. Some children may need a hand with particular equipment or instructions.

If signing up from outside the U.S. you will need a workaround to get through the registration process. Select any U.S. state from the drop-down menu, but then put your actual postal code in the “zip code” section. We don’t need your mailing address so the stand-in state doesn’t matter, but this way your credit card will be authorized through the billing postal code.

About The Dynamite Shop (kids cooking classes)

We started as a culinary social club for children and their families in a Park Slope, Brooklyn storefront with a teaching kitchen, cook's library, photo and video studio, backyard garden and a cafe up front. That was in 2017. In 2020 everything changed and we pivoted online.

Our goal is to help the rising generation of cooks find their niche in food, to celebrate the diversity of our communities and the wider world, and to develop positive relationships around food. Consider us Home Ec 2.0: we champion an old fashioned reverence of the table and offer a cool, supportive place to unplug, but we also embrace technology in the ways it can foster creativity and connection.

The Dynamite Shop empowers kids to express themselves through the lens of food, so we’re not just cooking lasagna and bibimbap to bring home for dinner--we’re learning about regional variations, live-streaming with chefs, watching and creating videos, and exploring how food intersects with culture and community.

Our core curricula is the Dynamite Dinner Club where kids gather in our Zoom kitchen to cook dinner for their families and learn real life cooking skills in the process. Beyond Dinner Club, we're a community that revolves around food: We offer cooking classes for the whole family, weekend workshops, food service projects, private parties and group cooking activities for all ages. Now that we’re online, we are available to the whole planet.
