KIDS 4-Day Summer Camp - Top Chef Jr. Essential Cooking Techniques (2103)


Kids Summer Camp:  Top Chef Jr. Essential Cooking Techniques
Ages: 7-11

Monday, August 12th - Thursday, August 15th @ 10:00am - 12:30pm
CHEF/INSTRUCTOR: Teresa Fox, Cherisse Byers, Cat Browne

This Summer, Whisk has developed a fun-filled camp dedicated to teaching your kids the essential cooking techniques taught at our favorite culinary schools!   In Whisk’s Essential Cooking Techniques Camp, we will introduce a series of menu items each day that incorporate a variety of cooking techniques.  Whisk’s chefs will teach your kids when and where to use certain techniques, and how to put different techniques together to create a dish. Our professional culinary team will inspire your kids and give them skills that will last a lifetime!

The camp will also focus on teaching our young chefs knife skills, food safety, team work, healthy dietary practices, how to read and organize recipe procedures, and preparing “mis en place“ (everything in its place - measuring & chopping ingredients before they begin cooking).  They will be working in small teams to develop their team cooking skills. 

On the first day, each student will be given the week’s recipes packets, so that they can become familiar with what they will be cooking throughout the week. Each day of the camp, they will prepare a complete meal incorporating the techniques they have learned that day.

This hands-on camp is designed just for kids, ages 7 to 11, and the $299 cost covers the cost for the entire 4-day camp. 

 Important Requirements:

-Students are required to wear closed toe shoes and tie their hair back if they have long hair.
-Parents must pick their students up promptly at the end of class, as we cannot watch the students after the class ends.
-If a student has ANY dietary restrictions, parents must fill out Whisk’s dietary restriction form at least 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the camp(s) the student is attending.
