It was sweet times last Tuesday for the first group of youngsters to return to Cooking with the Cat.


The interactive cooking and learning event co-hosted by the Metcalfe County Public Library and UK Extension was a pre-COVID favorite for local children. This is the first in-person Cooking with the Cat class held since 2019.


“We had an amazing turnout, we had 30 participants total counting children and adults. There were lots of smiles and laughs seen throughout the program. I think that both adults and children had a fun time while learning necessary kitchen skills,” said Ashley Holley, children’s librarian.


“After lots of discussion and lifted mandates we decided to try and have the program again in person, which has been a success.”

The program began in 2016 in partnership with the Extension Office and Heather Shaw.


“Cooking with the Cat is a fun, hands-on program that teaches basic kitchen skills. Children are given all ingredients to make the recipe of the week and use the kitchen skills learned that week to make the dish,” said Holley.


There are other Cooking with the Cat sessions in the coming weeks. Class size is limited, and registration is required. To register, call the MCPL.

Skylin and Layton closely follow the instructions.

Collin and Asher enjoy “making a mess”.

Ina took the “hands-on” cooking class to an extreme.
