Send your future chef or young baker to summer camp online!

For five days, campers will explore local and global cuisines while practicing foundational cooking techniques at home. Kids will be able to cook along with our instructors, ask questions and share their creations with the group as they gain confidence in the kitchen. Sessions are offered via Zoom. We’ll email you all of the recipes in advance, along with prep and equipment lists.
