Scramble – A Breakfast Joint’s Scottsdale location has launched “Think Global — Eat Local” Junior Edition. The quarterly cooking classes for youths ages 6 to 16 will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of four months in 2015: March 4, June 3, September 2 and December 2. Executive Chef Rick Moses at Scramble Scottsdale will teach the hands-on classes (youths must be accompanied by an adult). During each class, there will be a vendor spotlight on the farm or producer supplying the main ingredients. Through the series, kids and teens will learn chef skills and cooking techniques; they get to eat what they’ve cooked; and they take home a goodie bag with Scramble water bottles, aprons, samples, coupons and more.
“We developed this series in cooperation with our valued vendors to help teach youths how much fun food can be,” said Danielle Heywood, marketing manager for Scramble. “They’ll be introduced to the basics of cooking and how to get creative with food, along with learning to use healthy, fresh, local ingredients.”
