Scramble – A Breakfast Joint’s Scottsdale location continues its “Think Global — Eat Local” Junior Edition for 2015, 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.

The junior edition of this series includes quarterly cooking classes for children ages 6 to 16 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 2 and Dec. 2, 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 release stated.

On Sept. 2, attendees will learn how to make both savory and sweet treats using eggs from Hickman’s Family Farms, including mini baked omelets and mini cheesecakes, according to the press release.

The cost is $25 per class, stated the release.

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, according to the release.

“We developed this series in cooperation with our valued vendors to help teach youths how much fun food can be,” stated 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, Scottsdale.
