The Dynamite Shop is an online cooking school for youth founded by food writers and parents Dana Bowen and Sara Kate Gillingham. Their goal is to help the rising generation of cooks find their niche in food, to celebrate the diversity of our communities and the wider world, and to develop positive relationships around food. Consider them Home Ec 2.0: they champion an old-fashioned reverence of the table and teach fundamental cooking skills in their interactive Zoom kitchen.
Classes include The Dynamite Dinner Club, where students make a hearty, healthy meal for their family; The Dynamite Baking Club; weekend workshops on everything from cupcakes to dumplings to pizza; cooking service projects where they lead students to donate meals to people in need; and much more. Each class includes lesson packets with recipes, shopping lists, timeline, and core takeaways.
They are happy to customize a class for your troop that fulfills specific cooking badge requirements and will email a certificate of achievement to each attendee. To schedule a program, contact the founders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
