Whether you’re a kitchen newbie, an entertainer extraordinaire looking expand your repertoire, or just looking for a new healthy spin on classic recipes, we have something for you. Our cooking classes are a fun way to learn and taste something new. When you cook with the Y, you are supporting the Y’s mission in our community.

The Y teaches cooking classes to East Boston families, teens, adults, and seniors, as well as to youth in our Ashley Street after school program.  We grow food in our community garden that is used in our kitchen.  We work with the local farmer’s market, and a local farmer, to promote the use of fresh, sustainable produce and community supported agriculture.
