Cooking club helps autistic children build life skills

Brownie pizza was the featured entree at a recent cooking club meeting in Burlington County.

Four tiny chefs scrambled around the kitchen in the Medford community center, grating their white chocolate “cheese” and taking a quick break for “pin the pepperoni on the pizza.”

Brownie pizza may not be the most essential recipe for a 9-year-old to master, but Rosy Gruber says the cooking is secondary for her son, Jason.

“I tell people he’s going to a cooking class and they think, ‘Oh, he’s learning to cook.’ No, he’s learning to be a competent human being,” she said.
