  • 5 star review  My 9yo son attended a day camp at What’s Cooking and initially he protested about being sent; however; upon arrival his total attitude changed. Kim is amazing with the kids. She totally captivated the room and helped teach practical and somewhat complex cooking skills for a kid that isn’t familiar in the kitchen. I’m totally impressed by the sense of independence and pride just 5 hours gave him. Not to mention he was well fed from his own creations and made our family of 5 dinner for the night. Again, as a parent, I cannot thank you enough for the work you’re doing and I hope he continues to build his passion for cooking. Now... I better signup for my own lessons. Thank you Kim & What’s Cooking!

  • 5 star review  Oh my goodness it was SOO GOOD!! Thank you so much! The experience gave my 5-year-old son so much confidence. Actually, on the way there he said “Am I going to have to cut an onion???” And he was so nervous about that. When I got there to pick him up afterward, he said excitedly, “I cut an onion!!” And I couldn’t believe he did it! I’m so impressed with the skills they learn in your class and how much confidence they gain. Thank you for a great experience and a delicious meal!

  • 5 star review  We celebrated our daughter's 10th birthday at What's Cooking Lakeland last weekend. There were 12 kids - ages 6 to 12 - and they paired up to compete in a Chopped Championship. The kids absolutely loved it, and the adults had so much fun watching. The owner Kim was very easy to work with and basically handled everything - managed the event, provided drinks and all of the paper products we needed for the cake. She also met with our daughter before the event to talk about what she wanted. My favorite part of this experience was the trust that Kim placed in these girls while they were cooking, she (rightly) believes that even the youngest child has the ability to work in a kitchen. The girls were truly empowered by the freedom they had to explore their creativity, and show off their skills. The girls were amazing and loved eating their finished dishes. We highly recommend Kim and What's Cooking!

  • 5 star review  Kim and her staff were absolutely phenomenal for a private adult event that we were a part of last week. My 11 and 15 year old daughters have also been to multiple classes and have enjoyed every single one. This concept was much needed and a great addition to our Lakeland community! I can wait to host my next community learning event for my lighting company next month. Thank you, Kim for such a great Lakeland addition!
