TEEN 4-Day Summer Camp - Top Chef Summer Abroad (2100)

TEEN 4-Day Summer Camp - Top Chef Summer Abroad (2100)


Ages 12-17

Monday, July 22nd - Thursday, July 25th @ 1:30pm - 4:00pm
CHEF/INSTRUCTOR: Teresa Fox, Cherisse Byers, Cat Browne

This Summer we are whisking your teens off for a “Summer abroad” culinary adventure with all
new menus for them to explore. In this hands-on 4-day camp focused on learning teamwork and fun in the kitchen, our teen students will cook global recipes filled with interesting new flavors; and learn cooking “teen level” techniques and culinary skills from expert chefs. Your teen chefs will learn basic kitchen and knife skills, proper food safety, team work, and healthy dietary practices.

Each day we will introduce a different global cuisine with the menus incorporating classic cooking techniques; sautéing, roasting, steaming, grilling, and baking. And our teen chefs will be working in small teams to develop their team cooking skills.   

We will teach them how to read and organize recipe procedures, preparing “mis en place“ (everything in its place - measuring & chopping ingredients before they begin cooking). At the end of the 4-day camp, our teen chefs will have developed skills to cook a fantastic meal for everyone at home! 

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 including dessert from a different region of the world. On the last day, there will be a competition allowing them to creatively demonstrate their new cooking skills!

This session is designed just for teens, ages 12 to 17, and the $299 cost covers the cost for the entire 4-day camp.
