The Dynamite Shop (Cooking Classes) (Online Kitchen)

Save to Favorites

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:

The recipe was tasty, and my daughter learned a lot of new tips and techniques, as well as some history about Chinese-American cuisine (velveting; corn starch as a thickener; how woks are used, etc.).

Improvements:

At 11, I feel my daughter is just old enough to handle sizzling hot oil on her own, but I think having a disclaimer for parents on this recipe would be helpful. Even as an adult, wiping excess grease out of a pan with a paper towel can get tricky.

Response from The Dynamite Shop (Cooking Classes)

Hi Margaret - we are so glad your daughter learned some new techniques in the kitchen! We wanted to respond to your suggestion of a disclaimer. We actually do that that, in three different places. In the course description on our website, in the check out on Sawyer, and in the recipe packet you get emailed before class. Please let us know if you were unable to find those parts of our materials!

My 14 year old and 8 year old had so much fun!

Improvements:

Slow down when cooking- the kids fell behind and felt rushed (even though they were told it was OK to be on a different step)

My son felt so much pride completing this meal almost entirely independent.

Improvements:

It was a little slow to get going but not sure that can be avoided.
