Book It Then Cook It…


“Your program is so much fun…Can you come back tomorrow or next week?”  This comment is commonly heard after experiencing a Book N Cookin program.  Book N Cookin is an interactive, theme-based children’s program that incorporates storytelling, cooking projects and games. 

Miss Robyne, owner of Book N Cookin, is a Broward County Public Schools approved vendor and holds a master’s degree in Elementary Education.  She has written a water safety book that is sold on Amazon and and has been featured on the local TV news.  She was featured on Miami Moms and was listed twice in StartupNation’s Top 50 Leading Moms in Business.


Book N Cookin has been in business for more than 10 years and has visited libraries, community centers, after school programs, birthday parties, Girl Scout troups and in-house school and camp field trips.


Book N Cookin is appropriate for ages 3 and up and has served every age group from preschool through adult.  Book N Cookin also works with special needs groups and has participated in the Arc program for the past two summers. 


The program is tailored to be as fun as you want, as educational as you need and anywhere in between. Once you reserve your class and choose your theme, everything else is taken care of for you.  Book N Cookin arrives ready-to-go at your destination.  (Yay, no buses or carpooling!)  We bring all the cooking supplies, games, recipe handouts and necessary appliances.  Each child participates in the storytelling, game and cooking project and eats what they create at the end of the class.


Students, campers, preschoolers and adults enjoy the skills they gain while learning how to cook.  It is wonderful to see how cooking incorporates every subject across the curriculum and can be a great tool for incorporating education and social skills while completing an edible project.


Book your afterschool clubs, in-house field trips and birthday parties soon.  Book N Cookin classes fill up fast and you don’t want to miss out on all the fun!
