Julianna Banana

Create/ Learn/ Share

Julianna Banana aims to inspire kids and families to get baking, cooking, and creating in the kitchen all while learning about food, having fun, and gaining an appreciation for the importance of community and giving back. 

We provide culinary experiences for kids and families, ranging from Classes to our Culinary Boxes for Kids which combine the fun of a class with a collection of kid friendly recipe cards, kitchen tools, science activities and more. Sound amazing? Join the Julianna Banana Club by purchasing a subscription of  Culinary Boxes for even more fun. The Holiday, Valentines and Spring Boxes are shipped in early December, February and April. The subscription (also called bundle) comes with  complimentary classes where junior chefs learn in live interactive online classes how to make some of the recipes showcased in each of the Culinary Boxes!  Classes are taught by trained graduates of Le Cordon Bleu of Ottawa.

We support LOCAL business and give back to the community.  A fundamental pillar of Julianna Banana is to support local businesses and to give back to the community. Materials in our Culinary Boxes including kitchen tools and accessories are sourced whenever possible from local vendors. Recipe cards are designed and printed in Ottawa and our Julianna Banana apron is made and printed in Canada In keeping with our mission to give back to the community, a portion of proceeds from sales of Julianna Banana Culinary Boxes and Julianna Banana classes go directly to food charities . Join us, give back.



Fun, interactive baking and cooking classes for kids ages (5-14). Younger ones may need a sous chef and older ones will work more independently to showcase their new skills! Classes focus on providing children an opportunity to explore different foods, develop kitchen skills and create tasty treats for the whole family.

Classes are hosted by Cordon Bleu Pastry  Diploma Graduates and Julianna herself. Classes are kept small and designed to be fun and interactive! 

Since the start of Julianna Banana,  classes were  organized as a way of fundraising for local organizations. We are proud to have raised thousands of dollars collectively for the Dovercourt Recreation Centre and more recently the Parkdale Food Centre. We also have volunteered classes for the Girl Guides of Canada , Scouts Canada and other not for profits.
