Each summer at Second Harvest’s Culinary Arts Center, we offer week-long cooking camps for teens, and, starting this year, for youth ages 10-12. Students learn classic cooking skills in a commercial kitchen setting, and get personalized, hands-on instruction from Culinary Arts Center director Mark Rubin and me.
Each day, the students prepare a complete dinner for 4 to bring home to their family, using fine meats, fresh herbs, seasonal fresh fruits and locally grown vegetables, and the techniques taught in class.
Here are the Sessions and Dates for Summer 2012:
June 4-8 Kids Kitchen FUNdamentals ages 9-12
June 25-29 Summer Global Cuisines ages 13-18
July 16-20 Going Local: Farmers Market Bounty ages 13-18
The Kitchen FUNdamentals Class meets from 9am-Noon, and costs $275.
The others classes meet from 10am-2pm, and cost $375.
