A new business in the Old Ralston Granary is catering to kids with a culinary interest.

Kidz Cook With Joy will open next month with regular hours in the cooperative of businesses at 7409 Main St., Suite 7, but some classes are already being offered.

Owner Joy Jensen will host a schedule of classes, including badge-earning classes for Girls and Boys Scouts, food safety classes for teens, Kidz Night Out one Friday per month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and a summer cooking camp. The business will also host private birthday parties and other events.

Each class hosts about 10 to 15 kids, Jensen said. She had previously hosted the classes at community centers and summer camps but wanted her own space.

A grand opening will be held April 27 from noon to 3 p.m., where attendees can enter to win free parties, classes and summer camps.

Jensen will also host auditions for season two of the Food Network’s “Rachel vs. Guy Kids Cook-Off.” The next casting call will be held April 12 starting at 10 a.m. Kids will follow their favorite recipe in a five-minute taping. Tapings are free, but parents must bring all ingredients for the recipe. For more information and to register, visit or call 402-612-9199.
