Cook n Grow Cooking School Opens in Katy


March 7, 2019

By Natalie Cook Clark

Cook n Grow, a popular cooking school from College Station, has opened its second location at 2004 S Mason Road in Katy. The school is now enrolling students for spring break camps, summer camps, and scheduling birthday parties, events, and classes for all ages.

Gina Carrera, founder and owner of Cook n Grow, came up with the idea for Cook n Grow and opened her first location in College Station five years ago. "We’re so excited to be here," says Carrera. "I love Katy and can’t wait to meet and serve more Katy families!"

Carrera grew up around food and despite her schooling in architecture, she couldn't shake her desire to work with people and kids, cooking in the kitchen. Her family owns a winery in Mexico, her mom runs a catering business, and her brothers are all chefs.

Cook n Grow offers everything cooking-related including weekly classes, cooking camps, birthday parties, adult classes, private classes, and even corporate events. "We recently ran a corporate event for over 300 employees to have fun cooking and team building," says Carrera.

Cook n Grow just announced their spring break and summer camps.

Spring Break Camp

March 11-15, 1 p.m.- 4 p.m.


The camp is for students ages 5 to 11 years old who are interested in cooking. Through team work and instruction students will create and learn new dishes each day through various challenges.

Summer Camps

May 27-August 14, morning and afternoon sessions

Ongoing weekly themes

Kids who stay for both sessions stay for lunch at no extra cost. Cook n Grow also offers early drop off and late pick up for the convenience of the parents.

Classes and Specialty Events

Cook n Grow also offers classes for homeschoolers as well as Spanish speaking classes. "The Spanish speaking classes aren't just for Spanish speakers but also parents who want to expose their children to a foreign language," explains Carrera. Cook n Grow also has a class specifically designed for Girl Scouts seeking their cooking badge, plus many more.

Cooking classes are available for adults too who can BYOB. Private events are also available for girls night out and other parties.
