“TEACHING KIDS HOW TO FEED THEMSELVES AND HOW TO LIVE IN A
COMMUNITY RESPONSIBLY IS THE CENTER OF AN EDUCATION.”

We are offering a variety of engaging, virtual hands-on cooking classes through Zoom and in-person this summer!
We've got some fun and meaningful hands-on curriculum for kids and teens this summer. If you've got a Jr. Chef seeking engaging, nourishing, and delicious summer camp activities you're in the right place. We teach real-world, skills-based culinary techniques that will inspire your child to eat well for life (and clean up too)! In addition to the camps listed below, If you have a group interested in a private virtual or in-person camp or afterschool program, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can choose from any of our 6 virtual summer camps for your group!
The kitchen is a safe and fun place to explore, ask questions, and learn. Food connects the family and the community and cooking for others shows that we care. We are excited to offer a fun and safe environment for your kids to express themselves confidently, learn new skills, and explore with all of their senses in the kitchen. An experience they will never forget.
"With the first year of virtual kids' cooking camp underway, Chef Alicia is rockin' it with these afternoon Zoom cooking classes! They have put together a lovely and thoughtful menu and day-by-day cookbook with great tips, conversation, food science, and culinary education throughout each session.
My son is super engaged with the preparation and cooking process, proud of what he's making, and enjoying seeing the familiar faces. Brava!! So excellent!"

August 2nd - August 6th
In your home kitchen!
This teen camp will build motivation and confidence in the kitchen by emphasizing foundational cooking techniques through an exploration of new flavors and cooking styles. Beyond basic recipes, we'll dive into the essentials for becoming a confident chef. Discovering what is abundant and available will serve as inspiration for the dishes such as Skillet Pot Pie, Rainbow Buddha Bowls, and Sweet Potato Brownies. Stepping into the skills-based world of cooking from scratch will inspire campers to keep an open mind as to what is possible. This encourages autonomy by adjusting flavor combinations while testing new ideas and concepts in the kitchen. Expect glowing results.
"I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience my daughter had last week at zoom camp! She’s been interested in cooking for a while but this was her first official class and she is totally hooked. She asked if she could do it every week! Alicia, you were fantastic! As I popped in and out of the kitchen throughout the week I realized what a rage of experience you were dealing which could not have been easy. Thank you for your patience and enthusiasm! My daughter felt extremely proud of herself after each day and couldn’t wait to have all of us try her delicious creations. Thanks for such a positive experience."
