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.

Loved:

Technique was fairly easy (after we got the potatoes going through our strainer)

Improvements:

We would have benefitted from a third paise with instructions on blending the gnocchi dough- by the time we caught up we were a bit behind- the shaping instructions were easy, but we could have used more help understanding the dough kneading and consistency. There were do many people far ahead of us at that point. (We caught up quick at shaping though!)

HI Calleigh - so glad you enjoyed the class! And yes, we always try to have our eye on making sure everyone is caught up. Cooking should be fun, not stressful!

Response from The Dynamite Shop (kids cooking classes)

We always welcome feedback about the pacing of our lessons, thank you! You can feel free to let us know in class if things are going too quickly so our teachers and moderators can slow down. It happens often in class that a student needs to rework something and our moderator can chat then through it privately with direct message. We encourage that everyone feel free to cook at their own pace.

Thank you for your feedback and great idea! We're now planning an advanced cake/cupcake decorating class for March (since with this class, we need for the cupcakes to cool before frosting.)
