Family Cooking Class

Learn to cook as a family at our new cooking school in Pine Cliffs Resort. Our friendly instructors will walk you and your young ones through basic kitchen techniques and dishes that are downright fun to make.

You'll then prepare your own two-course meal and beverage, which you can sit down and enjoy onsite or take with you. We keep our groups small and we focus on healthy, fun foods, which makes this a class you and your kids will love.

This snappy hour-and-a-half class is a recipe for fun. As a family you will help prepare an appetizer and a dessert and will cook a main dish from start to finish.  Learn about local food, too, by making a main dish such as a kid-friendly cataplana. Enjoy the meal in our kid’s area, dining al fresco, or even take it to go to your room.

Mimo is committed to incorporating the following principles into our cooking classes for families and kids:

    Kitchen safety
    Proper food handling
    Food preparation
    Good etiquette
    Culinary techniques
    Dish presentation
    Table setting
    Incorporating math, science and more into the kitchen
    And more…

** Dress Code: For safety reasons, closed-toe shoes must be worn in all cooking experiences.
