LOCAL Announces Food-Focused Classes

LOCAL Announces Classes for Pre-School to 5th Grade kids

Food-focused science, cooking, art and music for all grades


LOCAL, a Norman restaurant specializing in farm to fork dining, is adding children’s classes to the menu. The restaurant is launching a unique class schedule to give children ownership and excitement about food, nutrition, math, science, and world culture.  The classes are designed to inspire interest in personal nutrition and health while expanding student knowledge of the history and culture of local and world-wide food. Classes are Tuesday-Friday at 9am and 10am for toddler and pre-school children and 3:30-4:20 for elementary students.


“Offering classes in LOCALVILLE has been part of our long-range plan for the space since before we opened,” states owner Abby Clark, a former Norman Public School elementary teacher.  “Parents are actively seeking enrichment opportunities for their children.  We have a unique approach to food in the restaurant.  We want to share and build on that philosophy with our young diners in fun and creative ways that will get them excited about food, food preparation and the cultures of food around the world.”


Morning toddler and pre-school classes are hands-on art, culture and music sessions focused around food.   “For example, one week we are doing Tie-Dye with Beets,” explains Clark. “We’ll create some messy fun art projects, sing songs and explore the 60s flower children movement.  We want to engage young minds and inspire confidence in creation while exposing them to fun foods.  And the parents don’t have to clean it up!”


Afternoon classes for school-aged children bring a bit more brain heft to the table.  Cordon Bleu trained Executive Chef Kyle Mills brings his talent and expertise to the classroom.


“Working with Abby, we’ve developed a fall curriculum that expands and supports what children are learning at school,” Mills explains. “In Kitchen Science we’ll talk about how yeast and bacteria work, how a lemon cooks a shrimp, heat and measurement, just a host of real world applications.  In Sneaky Chef, we dive into nutrition and show kids how making simple substitutions make a big impact on their personal health.  Learning that what we put in our body and where it comes from at a young age lays a strong foundation for healthy choices that will last far into the future.”


Parents or guardians stay onsite at LOCAL during class and can enjoy the complimentary snack station and WiFi.  “We’re offering parents a quiet space in the morning or afternoon to catch up with friends, meet as a book club, knit, read a book or answer email while their children are learning,” states Clark.  “As parents ourselves, we know that we are always rushing so having a parent break in the morning or afternoon can be a welcome time slot on the weekly calendar.”


Classes are $15 each, or $60 a month with sibling and multi-class discounts available.  Infant care is available for $5 during class.

Students will end each session with custom aprons, recipes and recipe boxes and/or art show depending on the class.


Enrollment is now open with no enrollment fee and the class sizes are limited.  Classes begin Tuesday, September 3rd. For the full list of class descriptions and the fall calendar visit www.eatatlocal.com and click on the “LOCALVILLE” tab.   Call (405) 928-5600 or email info@eatatlocal.com to enroll.


LOCAL is located at 2262 W. Main in the Normandy Creek Shopping Center in Norman.
