While we have been focused on chocolate, valentines, and other things February… we’ve already had a ton of parents call to inquire about our plans for Summer Cooking Adventures at KitchenAble. Thank you so much for the enthusiasm! We are, at the moment officially announcing our dates and details and we ALREADY HAVE reservations for every week. We suspect that we will have a wait list like we did last year so… if you have a young chef that wants to join us, please don’t delay.
Our summer kitchen adventure sessions will be from 10:00am until 2:00pm, Monday-Friday and will include a generous lunch prepared during class each day. Total cost for week is $200 (this $50 deposit plus remaining balance of $150 due by June 1).
Dates for 2017:
June 12-16, June 26-30, July 10-14, July 31-Aug 4
A broad range of topics will be taught that include: kitchen safety, basic kitchen skills, basic knife skills, menu planning, nutrition, the science of baking, how to understand
(and follow) a recipe, and proper dish washing technique.
The majority or our time in the kitchen will be taught through demonstration though the participants will take turns as helpers for “hands-on” experience. Each week has a limited number of participants. This non-refundable deposit of $50 will act as a reservation for the specified week, for one child. The balance of $150 for the remaining fee and necessary paperwork are due by June 1st. Participants will receive a recipe packet, certificate of completion, and a few kitchen tools that they will take home at the end of their week.
Participants must be 7 years or older and will be expected to conduct themselves appropriately during participation. In addition to fun with food we will discuss health and nutrition. Please be aware that children who attend this program will be expected to taste at least one small bite of all we prepare unless they have a food allergy. (Parents, thank you for supporting this policy.)
Experienced and older campers can apply to be a kitchen assistant for the Total cost for each week of camp is $200 per participant and includes a delicious lunch each day, apron, and kitchen tools!
Please note that this is a group learning environment and that although we do have a hands-on activity scheduled each day the majority of class time will be demonstration as participants take turns in their role of kitchen helper. If your chef needs more supervision or has difficulty with patience you may prefer to book a private lesson for them. You can email us for further details.
