Cooking with Ms. Achee!
Welcome to Partners in Cooking – Children’s Cooking Classes!
Meet the Teacher:
Hi! My name is Jessica Achee, owner of Partners in Cooking and I am combining my two passions – teaching and cooking, to now offer children’s cooking classes. I have been a full-time elementary school teacher for the past 8 years and absolutely love working with children. On the side, cooking and baking are my two biggest passions. This year, thanks to quarantine, I was able to combine my two loves and I began teaching cooking classes via Zoom with my 22 students. These cooking classes brought my students and me so much joy during at-home learning. Through this experience, I realized this is something that I really enjoy doing and want to share with others!
Cooking with Ms. Achee focuses on both cooking and baking for children of all levels and ages 5-18. I am offering cooking classes both in the students’ home and online via Zoom, depending on preference. Classes held via Zoom are not guaranteed to be one-on-one. However, if you are electing to have a cooking class in your home, you may choose between private and group classes.
Discover Our Cooking Classes
While cooking with Ms. Achee, children will learn how to make a new recipe, explore how math relates to cooking, and and become educated on the basics of kitchen safety! These classes will help your child become more independent and confident in the kitchen while having so much fun!
Cooking Class Options:
Below are sample menus for recipes you can expect to see in my cooking classes. However, I have a wide-range of cooking and baking experience and am happy to cater my lessons towards your child’s skill level and interest! If your child would like to learn how to make something not on the list, please just let me know in the special requests section on the booking request form and I will do my best to accommodate to their needs.

Classes range between 60 minutes and 120 minutes. Most classes are 90 minutes long.
Ingredients and kitchen tools are not included in class price. The recipe(s) will be sent out upon paid reservation so that you can purchase ingredients prior to class. I do try to keep ingredients and equipment fairly simple for most of my recipes to accommodate to the needs of different families. Students will need to have all ingredients and equipment accessible before class begins (Ingredients do not need to be measured before class). Please plan for an additional 15 minutes to set-up and clean-up before and after each lesson.
If booking an in-person class, little-to-no assistance is needed (outside of ensuring we have the correct ingredients and cooking tools). If booking a Zoom class, students should be aware that children will need to use the oven, stove, and knives during some of these lessons. We will review safety at the beginning of the class, but parental supervision is suggested anytime children are in the kitchen.
