Kids Cooking Camp – Back to Basics

Monday July 29 @ 10:00 am - Friday August 2 @ 12:00 pm


During this 5 day camp experience, your young chef will participate in hands-on classes under the guidance of our expert Chef Instructors.   We will be creating and eating recipes each day that focus on knife safety and techniques; they will practice essential kitchen skills, learn about kitchen equipment and master the fundamentals of cooking.


Campers will start out Monday learning about kitchen equipment, kitchen safety, hygiene and terminology.   Campers will learn how to make French Bread Pizzas.


Campers will start out with basic knife skills, learning how to chop, dice and julienne cuts. Campers will learn to make Vegetable Omelets and fruit salad.


Campers will learn about sauces today, and they will be making homemade alfredo sauce and pasta.


Campers will start out with learning the importance of ingredient measuring, and how to use a Stand Mixer.  Campers will learn to make mini apple tarts.


Campers will complete the week with a basic introduction to pastry and baking skills.  Campers will gain the confidence and create cupcakes.
