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.

Our goals for this four-day beginner series is to build your skills and confidence, as well as training your taste buds. At the completion of the Beginner series, you will be ready to put together simple meals for yourself and family from basic pantry items.

Students will learn the basics of knife skills, simple soups and stocks, and sauces; easy vegetable preparations; how to cook eggs; and the methods for cooking familiar cuts of beef, pork, chicken, and fish. 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.

Week 1: (July 20) Basic Knifes Skills; Easy Vegetable Prep; All About Eggs
Week 2: (July 27) Soups, Stocks, and Simple Sauces
Week 3: (August 3) Moist Heat Cooking Methods;
Week 4: (August 10) Dry Heat Cooking Method

Classes are held on consecutive Tuesdays. A light snack prepared by our staff and non-alcoholic beverages provided – so you can survive!

Spend some time in the kitchen together this summer in a Parent/Child cooking class. Kids ages 8-12 pair with an adult to learn some cake decorating skills – and put them to use in our cupcake decorating event! We’ll provide the cupcakes, frosting, and decorations – students bring their vision and creativity! Our instructors will show you the ropes, outline the theme you’ll be working within, and then set you loose. And to make things a little more interesting, our judges will pick a winning team.

We’ll have snacks and beverages for you, too, as well as boxes to take your creations home.

Our classes are nut-free; please let us know about any other food allergies or restrictions your child may have.

Tuition price is for one parent and one child together.
