5. Cooking with Kids Miami
Cooking With Kids Miami These kids sure know how to have fun.
Kids love coloring on freshly-painted walls with Sharpies. They love macaroni necklaces and eating glue. But Maria T. Cummins, a Venezuelan-native who launched Cooking With Kids Miami, also wants kids to love sun-dried tomato hummus and freshly-made flat breads. In her cooking classes, Miami's youth learns about grilled vegetable skewers and turkey burgers. They can even attend a four-week summer camp program entitled "Etiquette for Boys and Girls" ($125) where they master full course table manners and proper party behavior. Consider it a "Preemptive Pata Sucia Intervention" program. Enough said.
