Top Chef Junior Summer Camp

Let us whisk your kid away for an exciting culinary learning experience while school’s out this Summer. These hands-on, 4-day camps will get your kids in the kitchen and learning real cooking techniques — and having a blast! All camps are for ages 7 -13, and the $250 cost covers the cost for the entire 4-day camp. Camp hours are Monday-Thursday from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM.

Dates for each individual session:

June 11-14

June 18-21

June 25-28

July 9-13

July 16-19

July 23-26

July 30 - August 2

August 6-9

In Whisk’s Top Chef Junior Summer Camp, our young chefs will learn basic kitchen and knife skills, proper safety and sanitation, 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 young 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 young chefs will have developed skills to cook a meal for everyone at home!

On the first day, each camper 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!

Whisk Kitchen | A Community of Cooks

“I think cooking and food is something that unites everybody. Being able to share that with our friends and our neighbors people that we meet here in the store is something that really, really makes us feel like we are sharing our passion. Diane and I started this business with the idea of building a community of cooks but the true test of that is does the community build on itself and take a new life of its own? And that's really what's happened We've got the community of chefs and that's profession based and they cook in a restaurant Then we've got assistants who help out in the kitchen passionate cooks, people who just love to be around the kitchen. Our customers are a big community. We try to bring people into the store we try to educate them, entertain them, and inspire them. It's the sharing of the food and the technique and the skills that makes it so delightful. Whether it is sharing through a class, a party. Sharing tools that can make cooking more fun, easier. There is no other cooking store that has the inventory that they have. I get the expert advice as well as the product I'm looking for. This store is built with over 15,000 different, unique items. and all of those tools have a purpose. We've got the tool that will provide value, and also help them accomplish whatever they want to accomplish. When students come in for our classes they can expect great training, technique, fun, and a party! But they can pick and choose what they want We have some students that come in so they can up their game We've got other students who might come in for a Friday or Saturday night They're getting a show, they are getting technical training but they sit back, relax, sip on a glass of wine and it's their choice how much they participate. I love that look on a persons face when they go "oh my gosh, I can't wait to go home and try this out" Literally, cooking changes the chemical compounds in food Figuratively, cooking changes the way you eat, it changes the way people interact together, and it changes your experience. It's in that process, where you're sitting together, you're cooking you're learning about what's being cooked, but really what's happening is you're starting to talk about life stories. It's through those life stories that you end up getting enriched yourself because it just broadens your experience Everyone has to sustain themselves and if we can do it together in the kitchen it's something that we really want to nurture in our community. We are really, truly a community of cooks and people love it.”
