Young Chefs’ Club – Should We Review It?
Young Chef’s Club (ages 5 and up) is a monthly subscription from America’s Test Kitchen that focuses on the intersection of food and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics):
The mission of America’s Test Kitchen Kids is to create a new generation of empowered cooks, engaged eaters, and curious experimenters. We are a group of editors, educators, and cooks applying America’s Test Kitchen’s scientific know-how and rigorous testing to create meaningful learning experiences for children. Our goal is to foster a community in which all children feel empowered to take the lead in the kitchen and feel excited to learn about the world around them through the lens of food and cooking. We encourage kids to take risks, embrace and learn from failure, and develop a healthy and positive relationship with food.
Box themes change every month and will be a surprise for kids (grown-ups will receive shopping lists ahead of time via email). Themes range from specific ingredients (such as cheese or bread) to cooking techniques (such as cake decorating), scientific subjects (such as food texture or molecular gastronomy), and cuisines or types of food (such as tacos). The themes will not repeat—you’ll have a new box filled with new recipes, activities, and experiments every month.
Each Young Chefs’ Club box includes:
- Recipe cards
- Hands-on experiment cards
- Kitchen technique cards
- “Make It Your Way” recipe challenge
- Achievement button
- Cooking tool or recipe ingredient(s)—don’t worry, we won’t send you duplicates of common kitchen items!
- Other fun activities: games, puzzles, taste tests, art projects, and more.
- As a member, you’ll also receive access to our digital library of recipes, activities, videos, and fun quizzes for kids.

Good to know: “Food is not included in the boxes. For your convenience, we email you a shopping list when your box ships and include a printed shopping list in all boxes.
