Hands on Kids/teen

Kids' Camp: American Regional

We welcome kids ages 7 to 11 to join us for a five-day camp, featuring hands-on cooking, learning and lots of eating! We will focus on cuisines and ingredients from coast to coast, while learning how to follow recipes, understanding classic techniques, presentation, working cleanly and safely in the kitchen, and exploring new foods and flavors. All recipes will be measured ahead of time so we can focus on the techniques, but proper measuring practices will be covered in class.

  • Guacamole with Homemade Tortilla Chips 
  • Grilled Steak Fajitas with Roasted Peppers and Onions, Cheese and Sour Cream   
  • Grilled Corn Elotes with Queso Fresco 

Day 2: The South 

  • Pulled BBQ Chicken and Cheddar Biscuit Sandwiches 
  • Skillet Mac-n-Cheese

  • Brownie Sundaes

Day 5: East Coast
