CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Day 1: Let’s Get The Basics Down
Young chefs get a running start on their culinary expertise as they spend their first day of camp exploring age-appropriate culinary skills and techniques that they will use and build on over the week. They’ll learn (and practice) basic knife skills and discover how to use a variety of kitchen equipment and tools as they dig deep into how a kitchen works. Along the way, they’ll get lots of hands-on experience as they whip up yummy recipes all by themselves like homemade pasta and pizza, including homemade dough from scratch, and more.

Day 2: The Young Chef’s Herb Garden
Herb gardens can be a chef’s best friend, and this includes budding chefs, too. On day two, kids will have lots of hands-on fun as they explore how to use different herbs in a variety of recipes and then how they’re added to recipes to create flavorful delights such as a fresh Pesto Pasta dish made with homemade pesto, savory Herb Muffins, and more. At the end of the class, they’ll learn how simple it is to grow herbs as they start their own herb garden made out of recycled materials found right in the kitchen, and then take them home to nurture and grow.

Day 3: On Your Mark, Get Set… Let’s Cook!
On our final day of camp, it’s time for the kids to pull it all together and use the information they’ve learned this week!  Our budding chefs will divide into small groups and find a unique set of ingredients in their mystery box. Then it’ll be up to them to create tasty sensational dishes from these ingredients.  Don’t worry, we’ll provide clues to spark their creativity and, of course, we’ll they’ll also have plenty of expert assistance from Chef Ariel and our staff as the kids use their imaginations to create their own unique dishes. At the end of class, we’ll award fun prizes as kids compete for the title of most original recipe, most colorful, healthiest, and tastiest recipe. Of course, everyone goes home with a win under their belt. What a perfect way to show off their newfound cooking skills!
