Testimonials from Grown-ups

It is the best subscription we have received. The recipes are always well written and delicious. We go back and remake almost all of them several times. The tools are excellent quality and overall it offers new kitchen skills for my 12 year old that has been in the kitchen with me her whole life. She often makes the entire box without my help!

I've been impressed with how many of the recipes and skills taught through the box make it into the regular family rotation....corn tortillas and flat bread to name a few. I like that the science of cooking is a major part of most boxes.

Very impressed! I love all the different activities that are included in the box. My 5 year old Grandson and I would have never made homemade cheddar fish crackers or fruit snacks and they are amazing. The recipes have been tested and turn out amazing. Look forward over the next few years to go back and visit each box again and again!

Extremely impressed with the whole club. My son loves opening each box, exploring it and then taking charge of the meal planning for dinner. In fact he wants to make dinner every weekend and help me when I'm cooking!
