Kitchen Coach Cooking Camps, like all our classes are completely hands-on. First on our list for all camps is detailed instruction on kitchen safety and hygiene; this is reinforced throughout the week. We return your children to you at the end of a busy day, tired and full of new food related knowledge, experiences, tastes and ideas
The camps are structured like adult classes; The kids come in we have a brief planning session for the day, a demonstration of new techniques and new food items and we begin our cooking. They are given lots of responsibility in a safe environment; room to have great successes, make mistakes, and gain confidence. Kitchen confidence translates exceptionally into other aspects of their lives.
We are health focused and casually impart nutritional information throughout the recipes and discussions. While we encourage kids to try new things we don't require; there are always lots of alternatives.
Our philosophy is to let kids "boss themselves". They help themselves to snacks during the day and we discourage comments on others eating habits. The kids work together in ever changing groups and forge new friendships.The kitchen for the week is their place; a place they can come and experiment with food, gain confidence, work with others and expand their repertoire of food knowledge.
