Attention, grill newbies! We offer a special edition of our one-day Saturday workshop that will get you started outside at the grill.

Students will learn how about basic equipment, how to fire up the grill, the importance of multi-zone cooking to control temperatures, and learning to determine “doneness”. Students begin with a knife skills review, then work their way through the 12 essential recipes we believe every grill master should know – everything from grilling the perfect burgers to rubs, mops, and marinades. These recipes call for just a few simple ingredients and are open to lots of interpretations.

This class is great for anyone who has never had the nerve to light the grill – and that includes cooks who feel comfortable inside, but not in the open air! For more details, especially concerning your level of expertise, please give us a call.

You don’t need to bring anything – we provide an apron for use during class as well as plenty of take-away containers.

This is a rain or shine event (okay, if it’s a monsoon, we might reschedule…). Bring you fears and your appetite: we will quench both.

Note: Enrollment is limited; we want to keep the class small and focused!

Give yourself a break this year and learn to use that knife – it’s going to make your holiday meal prep a breeze. Through demonstration and hands-on participation, students learn the basics of chopping, slicing, and dicing vegetables the right way! We’ll also cover the basics for selecting, honing, and cleaning your knives.

Please bring a chef’s knife (non-serrated) to class and we’ll sharpen it for you (but we have plenty of knives to use in class is you don’t have one!)

Ah, to be Viennese! Or a Parisian. Or anyone who enjoys a pastry and coffee at a European cafe. Since we can’t go to Europe this summer, we’re creating our own European-style bakery here. 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.

  • 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 18-22 , from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM each day.
