The Cooking Room at PS3 The Charrette School
The Cooking Room currently operates through a dedicated kitchen classroom at the Greenwich Village-based P.S. 3 The Charrette School in NYC.
With the resources and experience of the International Culinary Center (formerly known as The French Culinary Institute) we developed lesson plans for Kindergarten through 5th grade. The curriculum boils down to taste, nutrition and technique and ties in with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts.
