The Kids Cooking Club in Cape Town, South Africa, is a cheerful, colorful space with lime-green walls, stacks of plastic mixing bowls, and children decked out in aprons and paper chef’s hats concentrating on sprinkling candy bits onto cookie dough. Mondisa, its founder, clearly loves working with kids. She smiles as she describes the club’s weekday cooking classes and weekend birthday parties, where budding young chefs master basic techniques, learn to follow recipes, and finally enjoy tasting the treats they make themselves.
