Inspiring Kids to Create in the Kitchen
Julianna Banana - Bake with Me
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 individual Classes to our Culinary Boxes for Kids which combine the fun of a class with a collection of kid friendly recipe cards, kitchen tools, teacher-crafted science activities and more. Sound amazing? Join the Julianna Banana Club by purchasing a subscription of Culinary Boxes for even more fun. The Summer, Harvest and Holiday Boxes are shipped in July, October and December. The Subscription 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 local charities . Join us, give back.
If your budding Chef would rather simply join a class without the Culinary Box, sign them up for a fun, interactive baking and cooking class 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.
Dessert and pastry classes are hosted by Cordon Bleu-trained hosts and often 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. CHEO and the School Breakfast Program of Ottawa. We also have volunteered classes for the Girl Guides of Canada , Scouts Canada and other not for profits including Kids Up Front Ottawa.
