June 2007: HAL launches a kids and teen Culinary Arts Center activity program to bring the joys of cooking to the younger set. Kids are taught basic cooking techniques, kitchen safety, new ingredients and how to follow recipe instructions. Aside from the fun involved, cooking encourages kids to think about numbers and measuring, cleanliness, safety and time management. The preparations range from simple to teen sophisticate with dish recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. The Culinary Art Center is a place where questions are encouraged and having fun is a must!
