With every day that goes by summer is getting closer and closer! For most people, summer is all about barbecues, warm nights and trips to the beach. While I enjoy all of those things, I look more forward to the time I get to spend teaching young Chefs. I have been teaching Kid’s Cooking Camps in Los Angeles for over 10 years.
Mid June is the start of my Kids Summer Cooking Camp: a series of classes designed to get kids comfortable in the kitchen and expand their palates with a variety of cuisines and recipes. Children from ages 7-15 get paired with other kids their own age and spend a week really learning to cook. We do four different levels of this class based on how proficient the student already is at cooking and we also offer one stand alone class devoted only to baking.
In my years of running the Culinary Classroom, most of my time is spent teaching students with serious personal or professional aspirations to be chefs. While I take great pride in my adult students, there’s something very refreshing about teaching children for a change.
In many ways, their exuberance for getting to do something new and creative reminds me of how I was when I first began learning the culinary arts. Teaching children responsibility in the kitchen also helps to reinforce good eating habits that will last a lifetime, and it’s extremely fun to enjoy tasty treats, too! They may even clean the kitchen after they cook you dinner!
Parents of past participants have had wonderful things to say about their experience:
I want to thank you for a wonderful experience you gave my daughter, Sophia. She really was inspired. She will be cooking for a group of adults and is not at all worried! Thank you for your hard work and graciousness!” Irina Rivera
“Lucas had so much fun. The first day I picked him up from cooking he had a huge smile on his face. Delete spaceHe said mom, I love the class!” Mrs. Frank
I’ve assembled a variety of dates and times that should fit every schedule and ensure that all interested participants can join us for fun this summer!
If your son or daughter learns to cook at a young age, it’s an investment that will pay off tenfold when they grow up and leave for college. You won’t have to worry about them blowing a ton of money or eating Subway 7 days a week.
So, when you are looking for the premiere Cooking School for Los Angeles Children’s Cooking Camps – look no further. If you’re interested in having your child participate, please visit our Summer Kids Camp page to register your child!
