This class is well-rounded with great instruction that flows nicely and my aspiring chefs are learning so much! I also loved how the chef instructor stopped and checked for understanding and answered questions from the students. We tried other online cooking classes and the fell flat. Dynamite is really top notch and my girls look forward to their next class.


Absolutely nothing!

Absolutely fantastic. Raves. I am seeing my kids develop kitchen confidence — and make amazing meals — before my eyes, in a way that could never, ever happen if I were leading a class. I am THRILLED. Truly.

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.
