Kids Cooking Camp Week 1

June 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)
Kids Cooking Camp

Students must register for a full week of camp.  This camp is designed to teach them basic kitchen skills.   This summer camp will be structured with lesson plans that will teach kids about kitchen and food safety, knife skills and different knife cuts, nutrients found in whole foods and how they lose nutrients prepared in different methods, and other fun facts about the food they eat and where it originated.  This camp will be treated as a school class, including worksheets that they will need to complete.  Students will have a packet that reflects what they learned in this camp and the recipes to take home to make these meals again.  Students will work in groups of 4 at a station.  Stations will be organized by age.

Monday is an introduction to kitchen safety and class rules and expectations.  The menu will consist of different sandwiches and burgers.  They will learn about the meats, cheeses and breads that they use or that are in the market and will sample different breads and cheeses.  They will begin learning knife skills and the reason we use those knives in the kitchen.

Tuesday is an introduction to spices and the regions that they come from and how they are typically used.  With spice knowledge, the students will learn about the cuisine of a different country.  They will make and season a meal using the spices they have learned about.

Wednesday is learning about the different foods of Italy.  We may be making pasta, pizza or risotto.  The students will continue to work on knife skills, weight measuring and introduce other culinary tools and equipment used in a kitchen.

Thursday is American Classics.  Students will learn of the foods found in different regions of the USA and where those food originated.  We will also talk about nutrition and how to get healthy foods into their diets.

Friday is baking day.  All sweets baked in this class will be sent home with the students.  I prefer they don’t eat more than 1 on site.  We will again start the day with kitchen safety as it pertains to baking and using the mixers.  We will have a set menu for the baking class to introduce them to different types of baked goods.
