Trackside Teen Center is offering a cooking class for teens where they can learn how to make their favorite tailgate party snacks from scratch such as baked mozzarella sticks with homemade marinara sauce, cheese wontons, chicken wings, homemade ice cream, barbecue turkey meatballs, party desserts and more.

Tailgater Treats, taught by Amy Bien, who teaches at Fairfield Warde High School, will conclude with a Battle of the Tailgaters cook-off where students will compete to make their favorite tailgate party snacks. Friends and family will be invited to judge and enjoy all the Tailgater Treat contest entries.

“The Trackside cooking classes are always a lot of fun and Tailgater Treats is going to add an exciting spin on culinary arts. We can’t wait to see what students will come up with for the Battle of the Tailgaters cook-off,” said Amy Nassef, Trackside program director.

Tailgater Treats will meet at Trackside’s commercial kitchen on Wednesdays from March 2 to April 6  from 4 to 5:30. The student fee of $300 will include all supplies for the course and supplies for the Battle of the Tailgaters cook-off. The class size is limited, so students are encourage to register as soon as possible.
