Series Description: 

Hey kids (ages 9-14), did you know that a little bit of chemistry knowledge goes a long way in the kitchen…and it can be loads of fun, too! If you want to learn not just “how” to cook but also “why” things happen the way they do when you cook, then join Kitchen Professor Lisa Sharpe Elles for this interactive 3-Day Camp, where you’ll do just that. She’s ‘real deal’ college chemistry professor with lots of experience teaching budding chefs.

You get to be the scientist as you test out your new knowledge by performing recipe experiments in the kitchen over the course of 3 fun-filled classes. We will tap into your inner “Alton Brown” (think Food TV’s favorite kitchen scientist) as we explore the science of food! The kids will make pizza dough that rises and peanut brittle that foams. You will get to test the effect of acids in fresh homemade cheese and even make fluffy marshmallows, and more! A great class for curious young chefs.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CLASS: 

  • NOTE: Please be aware that all cancellations must be received prior to 72 hours before the start time of your class. For more information, and to view all class-related policies, including cancellation, masks, and safety-related measures, please click here. 

  • Let us know if you want to sit near someone else attending the class.  Let us know at the time of registration (in the ‘comments’ section of your registration) whether you would like to sit near someone else attending the class..  You could also call us with this information at 913-341-4455

  • For kids ages 9-18 attending this class, we require A Waiver signed by parent/legal guardian prior to admittance to this class:  [Click here to download the Waiver]   Note that the Waiver requires that you provide  (1) a phone number where you can be reached during the class if necessary and (2) name(s) 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 heather@kcculinary.com or 2) bring 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.  Also note that If someone other than the parent signs a Waiver, they will need a legal document to be presented that shows without question that they have the legal authority to sign a Waiver on behalf of your child at that time.

  • Only registered students allowed in the classroom during class.  While we love those parents/grand-parents, aunts & uncles, they will not be allowed to attend ‘just to watch their child’ without registering for the class.  You are welcome to enjoy our Kitchen Shop Experience while your child, age 9 and up, is attending. 
  • 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.
