Igniting a love of culinary arts

Kitchen Wizards offers fun and educational VIRTUAL cooking and baking programs for children and adults. Kathy Wolper, founder of Kitchen Wizards offers programs that encourage kids of all ages to discover the magic of cooking, one bite at a time!  Kitchen Wizards’ culinary programs encourage creativity, patience, and listening skills. Students learn to take pride in their work and gain a skill that they can use for a lifetime.

We offer VIRTUAL baking, cooking, candy-making programs, and summer camps.  Great fun for scout groups, birthday parties, and much more!  For adults, look to Kitchen Wizards for virtual employee engagement and corporate teambuilding programs.  Everyone enjoys working in their own kitchen at home and sharing their creations with friends and family. We ignite a love of the culinary arts in our home chefs of all ages.

Real World Learning

Prior to the pandemic, Kitchen Wizards had 25 instructors in PA and NJ. Now, geography doesn’t limit us, as we can reach children and adults from around the world.  We integrate what is happening in the world, in children’s lives, in their classrooms into our lessons. As examples, in some of our programs, we talk about friction (when rolling balls of dough between palms of hands), body temperature (why foods may melt if held too long), arrays (when putting cookies on a cookie sheet), holiday traditions throughout the world, former/current presidents’ favorite foods, and how to eat healthfully with examples of foods that are rich in protein, high carb, high fat, various vitamins, and more.

We help children connect what they’re learning in the classroom to real life situations. Kitchen Wizards helps children build confidence in a life skill that will serve them well throughout their lives.

We reinforce culinary skills with children, using our fun online quizzes.

 Our History: Kathy’s Just Desserts

Kathy Wolper started her business, Kathy’s Just Desserts, Inc., in 2001 as a home-based baking business. However, as a former teacher, she quickly realized she missed the interaction of teaching.

Kathy expanded her business to include teaching culinary enrichment programs to children and adults. This part of her business grew so much that she decided to create a division called Kitchen Wizards®. Prior to the pandemic, we offered in-person programs.  Now, Kathy presents virtual programs – as always, Kitchen Wizards helps kids of all ages to “Discover the magic of cooking, one bite at a time!”®

As of 2016, Kathy no longer sells baked goods.  All of her business is now devoted to helping children and adults develop an important life skill and enjoy preparing food right in their own kitchen.

Since the pandemic in 2020, Kathy has converted Kitchen Wizards to be only VIRTUAL.
