Scramble – A Breakfast Joint’s Scottsdale location continues its “Think Global — Eat Local” Junior Edition for 2016, an initiative that kicked off earlier this year given the ongoing demand for local products combined with the popularity of cooking shows for all ages.

Think Global — Eat Local Junior Edition includes quarterly cooking classes for youths ages 6 to 16 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of four months in 2016.

The remaining two for this year are Sept. 14 and Dec. 7, according to a press release. Executive Chef Rick Moses at Scramble Scottsdale will teach the hands-on classes; youths must be accompanied by an adult.

The courses feature a quarterly vendor spotlight on the farm or producer supplying the main ingredients for each of the classes.

The remaining class schedule is as follows:

  • Sept. 14: Cooking with baked bread featuring Strictly From Scratch: attendees will learn how to make recipes featuring bread from local vendor Strictly From Scratch.
  • Dec. 7: Cooking with fruit featuring Sun Orchard Juicery: attendees will learn how to make recipes featuring fruit from local vendor Sun Orchard Juicery.

The cost is $25 per class. Youths will learn chef skills and cooking techniques, they get to eat what they’ve cooked, and they take home a goodie bag with Scramble water bottles, aprons, samples, coupons and more.

“We developed this series in cooperation with our valued vendors to help teach youths how much fun food can be,” said Scramble Co-Owner Don Talbot, in the release. “They’ll be introduced to the basics of cooking and how to get creative with food, along with learning to use healthy, fresh, local ingredients.”

Classes will be held at Scramble – A Breakfast Joint’s Scottsdale location only, at 6590 N. Scottsdale Road.
