The Culinary Member of the KiwiCo Family! Yummy Crate was designed to foster a love for science and cooking in kids ages 6 to 14, with recipes and activities that explore hands-on experimentation in and out of the kitchen. Your monthly crate includes delicious family-friendly recipes that teach kitchen skills and explore the science of cooking.
What you’ll get: Each crate comes equipped with a delightful portfolio of recipe cards, carefully curated to offer you 3 delicious family-friendly recipes. Through these recipes, kids will not only create tasty meals but also develop essential kitchen skills and dive into the fascinating science of cooking.
STEAM activities also await children in every box, fostering a hands-on approach to learning and sparking creativity. Plus, they’ll get to experiment with a specialty cooking tool, making the cooking process even more exciting. Engaging their imagination, kids will find two captivating hands-on projects that allow them to learn and have fun both inside and outside the kitchen.
Beyond the kitchen, Yummy Crate also offers a Yummy Zine – a collection of kid-friendly science, captivating comics, food history, and quirky fun facts about gastronomy. But the journey doesn’t stop there; a grownup guide assists parents and caregivers in supervising and joining the excitement. To ensure a seamless experience, every Yummy Crate includes an easy-to-use shopping list that can be customized to suit your family’s preferences and needs.
What you won’t get: the ingredients! In order to allow each family to customize their meals to accommodate dietary preferences or restrictions, ingredients are not included. You’ll get an easy-to-use shopping list with items found at major grocery stores before your box even arrives, which will include alternative ingredient suggestions for different diets (vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free) whenever possible.
Here’s a sample of the fun projects from Yummy Crate:
Tasty & Toasty box showcases the incredible Maillard reaction and its mouthwatering magic. Kids will learn new culinary skills with three hearty and delicious recipes that showcase this browning phenomenon: hearty hamburgers, perfectly golden smashed potatoes, and mouthwatering crispy chicken tenders. Hands-on activities will keep them engaged and enthralled as they explore the science behind the Maillard reaction.
Rise & Shine is all about understanding the magic behind leaveners and how they transform ordinary ingredients into delightful, light, and airy creations. Kids will explore the art of breakfast as they whip up stacks of fluffy pancakes and master the art of thin, perfectly folded ones. To add a touch of sweetness, they will also learn to make a sweet strawberry syrup that pairs perfectly with their creations. Of course, there will be hands-on activities that will immerse kids in the science behind leavening agents, making this culinary adventure both delicious and educational.
