What You Will Learn

Cooking Class Description: Treat your budding foodie to five days full of hands-on kitchen experience this summer. They’ll master basic kitchen skills and craft tasty fare that they’ll want to make time and time again—from Crispy Chicken Taquitos to Homemade Pizza. On the final day, parents are invited to sample a test menu made by their star chefs. Each student will go home with a printed menu and graduation certificate. Designed for ages 12 and older, our all-new teen series will uplift your teen to become more creative and confident in the kitchen.
