Junior Chefs (9-14): A “Chef For A Day” Cooking Experience with Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt
This special opportunity is designed for all Junior Chefs (ages 9-14) out there. Hey, this is guaranteed to be a lot more fun than staying home on your day off school, right?
It’s an awesome special chance to get some “real deal” experience as you work in a commercial kitchen and learn alongside our own Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt. She’s got an easy-to-understand teaching style and her classes are always sprinkled with lots of humor. You’ll have such a great time in this morning’s 3-hour interactive class that’s loaded with valuable culinary instruction and tons of hands-on experience.
So, here’s the deal. Get ready to tie on an apron and learn (and practice!) essential culinary skills like basic knife skills, stirring, measuring, mixing, how to read a recipe and LOTS more as Chef shows off her mad cooking skills while teaching you to prepare some amazing kid-friendly dishes. Along the way, Chef Jill will give you one-on-one instruction and guidance.
Lunch with the Chef? You betcha! You and your new friends will end your class by sitting around the table with Chef and your new friends as you enjoy the food you’ve help to prepare.
This is a fabulous opportunity for budding chefs to learn cooking basics from a culinary pro... and have lots of cooking fun to boot!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CLASS:
We Require A Waiver Signed By Parent/Legal Guardian: Prior to admittance to this class, we require a waiver to be signed by a parent or legal guardian. This waiver requests a phone number where you can be reached during the class if necessary and names of any additional people who are authorized to pick up the child after class. We encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver, sign it and either 1) scan and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or 2) bring/send it to class with your student. Without an appropriately signed Waiver your child will not be allowed to attend class. We are sorry but we cannot make any exceptions to this rule. If someone other than the parent drops off your child, they will need evidence that they have the legal authority to sign a Waiver on behalf of your child at that time. [Click here to download the Waiver]
What To Wear To Class: For safety reasons, we also recommend that students wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.
If Your Child Plans To Attend Class With Someone Else, please add their name(s) to the ‘Comments’ section of your online registration so that we can seat you together; otherwise we cannot ensure that you will be seated together for the class. If you register for multiple students at one time, that registration will prompt you to supply the names of all students you are registering and we will know to seat you together.
Only Registered Students Will Be Allowed In The Classroom During Class: This is so your child will have the best possible experience and the instructors have their full attention. Parents should plan to pick up their students at the end of the advertised hours for their class.
Important Information Regarding Children With Special Needs: Our cooking instructors are skilled in teaching culinary education at an age appropriate level. Several of our instructors even have early childhood and teaching background and certification. However, we are not equipped to work with, nor are these classes designed for, children who may have special needs, issues with focus, or difficulty with sitting still to listen and concentrate on the instructor or issues with relating to other students in a classroom setting. When we encounter a student who requires significant special attention, the experience for the other students suffers. While our class and cooking camps are well staffed, we just don’t have the staff to be able to allocate someone to work directly with your child for the entire class. Should we identify a situation where we believe a student falls within one or more of these categories, we will be contacting you to pick up your students. Unfortunately, we will not be able to issue a refund for all or any part of the class or camp fees. Please feel free to call us to discuss any questions or concerns that you feel should be discussed in advance of your child’s class. Please be aware of our 5-day cancellation policy.
