Do you have to work for MEA but your kids are too young (or too bored) to stay at home all day? No worries, we've got you covered. Even if this doesn't describe your family, if you will be in town, Halloween Cooking Camp is a great way for your kids to spend 2 days off from school. This camp will not be available again until Summer 2018.
On Thursday and Friday, October 19th & 20th - all schools will be closed for MEA.
But at The Kids Cooking School, we will be staging 2 baking competitions and preparing 2 dinner recipes kids can recreate at home.
Don't worry, this won't be boring stuff. We will take the basics and teach them how to use a more complicated recipe or to use their own creativity to create their own recipe.
[UPDATE] You can now register for one day only. Thursday or Friday for $100/day.
On Thursday, we will have a Halloween themed cupcake wars style competition in the morning. Then in the afternoon we will teach all of the tips and tricks that your child needs to be able to make a quick and simple dinner for your family.
On Friday, the kid chefs will get to choose between a a Halloween themed cookie or cake competition in the morning. Friday afternoon will be another dinner recipe chosen by the kid chefs.
Each child works in teams of 2 at their own mini-kitchen and usually eat their dishes as they are finished, and many times they come home with plenty to share with their families.
We use the America's Test Kitchen Cooking School Cookbook as our primary textbook as well as other reputable sources (fair trade notice: we get a small commission on the sale of this book if you buy through this link) .
Each child will receive their own notebook to store their handouts, recipes, and notes. If your child attended Culinary Boot Camp in Summer Camp 2017, we will be creating all new different recipes and reviewing some core fundamentals (that's a good thing!). Kids should bring their notebook from summer if they have one.
