Cultivating Culinary Curiosity
Amongst Young Food Explorers




Fiddleheads Cooking Studio offers kids cooking classes within a fun and educational environment that promotes food exploration, expands the taste buds and teaches kids where food comes from leveraging seasonal ingredients.


Classes are conducted for children of all ages at various locations throughout Westchester, NY and Connecticut, including community centers, farms, public libraries, museums, farmers' markets and more. 



We want our children to make healthy choices and eat enough to nourish their growing bodies, but as a culture, we do not give them enough time and space to explore and get closely acquainted with food. Children should understand where different types of food come from and how much effort goes into obtaining our very basic ingredients and products.


When food is taken for granted, we lose our respect for it and distance ourselves from our nature as human beings. Fiddleheads Cooking Studio was established with all this in mind. Our mission is creating a fun, educational environment that promotes food exploration, while expanding the taste buds.


"My son has been taking cooking classes with Fiddleheads for a couple years now. He comes home from every class super excited to show me what he made and begs me to make it at home with him. He now begs me to help me cook when he sees me in the kitchen. Renana has been amazing and my son continues to sign up semester and semester again. His older sister has even decided to sign up next semester as well. My son and I cannot say enough great things about Fiddleheads".

I found Renana and it was like finding a diamond in the rough! She has incredible patience to deal with my 8 year old twins and their 5 friends! She creates nutritious, interesting, fun and yummy meals that the boys just love to serve to us moms, who just love to eat a meal cooked by their kids! I highly recommend Renana to anyone that wants their kids to learn how to cook healthy meals while having a great time!"

Renana cooks up the most delicious and innovative meals with children of all different ages while teaching and facilitating educational experiences for the students.  She opens up their creativity and imaginations while appealing to all of their senses.  Her lessons in food preparation are engaging, while fostering the necessary developmental skills of independence and autonomy in young children."

"My 5 year old started attending Fiddleheads Cooking Studio in Fall of 2023. The class take place in a chefs kitchen with lots of space. He loves cooking with all different kinds of ingredients. His favorite class was when he got a chance to pick the ingredients straight from the garden. The teachers are friendly and work well with children. They not only cook but also learn about sustainability and discuss health food options. We already signed him up for the winter session. I can’t wait to taste his creations. I highly recommend Fiddleheads."

Portchester Mom

"Our 11 year old son has been taking cooking classes with Fiddleheads and loves it so much. Renana and her team have really nurtured his passion for food and cooking, with an emphasis on fresh, simple, healthy ingredients, and plenty of room for experimentation, discovery, and fun."
