The Kids Culinary Camps are action-packed, fun-filled days where the children have the opportunity to learn about the culinary arts through demonstrations and hands-on cooking in small groups. The children will cook each day’s menu from scratch then sit down to enjoy a lunch they created. Menus are designed to be age appropriate, incorporate a variety of culinary techniques and skills, to appeal to and develop younger palates and to help children discover the process and pleasure of cooking and sharing food together. At the end of each day a recipe book is theirs to take and at the end of the camp, they will take home their apron so they can get busy in the kitchen.
