What you'll learn in this kids cooking camp class:

Do you have a kid that would love a culinary boot camp, that loves to cook but needs a bit of direction? This kids boot camp is designed to take your budding chef and keep them inspired all the while shaping the way they look at food, sanitation (eh-hmmm…the cleanliness of your kitchen) and basic understanding of kitchen chemistry.

We suggest signing up for multiple classes to build a solid foundation in cooking. This will be a start in our series of boot camps for teens and kids. 

This is a fully hands on camp designed for all levels. We see cooking as an art but also an incredibly important life skill that will follow them through out their life. Starting them off with the tools for success and a life long love of cooking is our goal. And hey, you will probably get a few nights off from the kitchen.

What they'll learn in Kids Boot Camp
  • Knife skills 
  • Kitchen Sanitation & organization
  • Proper recipe reading & Mise en Place
  • Basic culinary French
MENU

DAY 1
  • Very basic knife skills
  • Egg cookery - hard boiled and scrambled
  • Making bone broth
  • Egg salad tea sandwiches
  • Cucumber and cream cheese tea sandwiches
  • Super cheezy popcorn

DAY 2
  • Cheddar & bacon scones
  • Creamy tomato soup
  • Perfect grilled cheese
  • Funfetti cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting

Note:
  • This class is hands on
  • Students work side-by-side with other students to prepare each dish from start to finish.
  • Class are roughly 2 – 1/2 hours, unless otherwise noted.
  • Each student will go home with a recipe packet to start their culinary journey!
  • We respectfully request any long hair tied back (we provide hair ties just in case) and please wear closed toe shoes
  • PLEASE ALERT US OF ANY FOOD ALLERGIES – we can accommodate these but need at least 24 hours.
Substitutions and Class Format
We reserve the right to substitute ingredients, menus, recipes, chefs and instructors. Unless noted otherwise, all of our classes are hands-on and participatory in style. Our class size is limited and classes are structured to allow each student the opportunity to work closely with the chef in the preparation of dishes and to observe, up-close, the ingredients, tools and techniques used in the making of all dishes. The exception to the hands-on format are classes labeled as “Demonstration” or “Demo” or “Lecture”.
