Teen Summer Cooking Class
Introducing our week-long summer cooking course, for teenagers passionate about cooking and interested in acquiring some serious cooking techniques. Each day, we explore a variety of flavors and techniques, with a emphasis on developing healthy eating habits, sharpening cooking skills and stirring up creativity in the kitchen. This is not your typical make-pizza-and-ice-cream-sundaes kiddie "cooking" class! This is a hands-on class focused on mastering fundamental kitchen skills for a lifetime of great cooking.
The course runs four hours each day for five consecutive days. Each teen chef will take home a supply kit, an apron, and a packet of the recipes they make. Classes are only available as a five-day series, no single-day enrollments.
