Kids Camp: Earl of Sandwich Celebration

There’s more to a sandwich than slapping a slice of cheese between two slices of bread. Have you ever had a doner kebab? Or a Uruguayan hamburger, the chivito? How about Welsh rarebit or a beautiful composed sandwich from Denmark? Hot or cold, open or closed, vegetarian or pile-on-the-meat – you can travel the world and eat nothing but sandwiches the whole time! Students will also prepare homemade breads and rolls, condiments, and classic sides for their creations.

The camp is for students ages 10-15 years of age (no exceptions!)
CU will provide beverages and lunch for our students each day.
The series is 5 half-days, Monday-Friday, July 10-14 , from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM each day.
Upon registration, you’ll receive a information packet with a form to complete and return to us.

Kids Camp: Great British Bakery

There’s nothing like a cuppa and a scone! The goodies that come out of ovens all over the British Isles is pure heaven. Many of the breads and pastry we enjoy in America have their roots in England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland and we’ll be preparing them for our bakery.

Students will spend the first four days of camp learning the basic of European breads, cakes, and pastries. Garnishing and presentation will be very important, too. Students learn some solid culinary skills, tap into their creativity, and work together in a fast-paced environment. On the last day of camp, our students will open their bakery to “the public”, where you can partake of their treats.

We will cover building a pantry of ingredients and selecting a small battery of equipment, as well as tips for menu planning, nesting tasks, shopping the grocery store, and sources for ingredients.

Who should take it: Individuals who can cook as long as they have a recipe in front of them, or for those who have been cooking for years but have never had formal training and lack confidence about what they’re doing in the kitchen.
