Spoonfoolery Creative Cooking & Crafts is a creative educational resource that provides cooking and crafting classes year-around, right in your own home! Our seasonal cooking and baking offerings include sweet and savory selections, from pie making, bread baking, cake decorating, gingerbread house construction and decoration to complete meals, canning and preserving, candy making, and more. We're also expert meal planners and can be booked as a weekly personal chef service, private cooking lessons for the children of the house, or enrichment cooking classes during summer or the home-schooling school year. We also teach arts and crafts, such as needle felting, doll making, watercolor, and paper crafts.
You can also shop our Online Store, where many popular items from our days as a brick-and-mortar in-person kids cooking school are available for purchase to ship to your home or anywhere in the lower 48.
Owner/Executive Director, Mamata Reddy left corporate America for a career in the Pastry Arts, going from the cubicle farm of book publishing to the lightning pace of high-production catering and events. A graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism in Columbia, Mo., and The French Pastry School in Chicago, Mamata has combined her two very different backgrounds and become a culinary instructor for both kids and adults.
In early 2018, she opened Spoonfoolery as a kitchen classroom and event space in Evanston, Ill., where kids and adults could come learn how to cook, learn, and grow. The pandemic brought the physical space to a close in August 2022, but Mamata continues to share her love of teaching with you, either in your home, for an event, or as seasonal virtual classes.
