(2) June 22nd – June 26th: Special Request 1
Why did your child chose to come to cooking camp? Are they curious to learn how to make pasta from scratch? Or maybe they want to try a new salad? Special Request Weeks are all about the kids; they tell us what they like to eat… We teach them how to make it!

(* Same as Special Request 1 and 2; Recipes may change according to the kids’ preferences)
(11) August 24th – August 28th: The Makings of a Meal
Cooking is much more than actual kitchen work. it involves picking the recipe that suits you most, shopping for the right ingredients and overall a lot of planning. During this week, the kids will focus on the process: from going through different recipes to shopping for the right ingredients (on a budget !) to actually cooking. This is a fun and exciting learning experience. An added value will be a greater appreciation of the home cook in your house!
(12) August 31st – September 4th: Restaurant Week
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to start and operate a restaurant? At Restaurant Week budding chefs, entrepreneurs, and young restaurant enthusiasts will launch their very own restaurant!
From establishing a name, choosing the theme, designing the decor, writing the menu, learning etiquette, and creating, cooking, and serving the signature dish.
