Young Chefs AcademyYoung Chefs Academy
What are we? We are a real cooking school for children between the ages of three and ninety-three! We provide a unique learning opportunity for your child to develop a life skill that they will use every day. Through hands-on participation and an open environment for discovery and knowledge, children are able to use food and cooking techniques to build practical life skills knowledge, increase self-confidence and gain independence.
What do we do? We teach a very important and useful life skill–how to cook. Our Young Chefs learn valuable culinary skills and techniques that they will use for the rest of their lives. We all have such demanding schedule these day with work, school and sports activities, it’s difficult to pass on to our children these skills: how to cook properly, kitchen safety and make delicious and nutritious meals. We use the My Pyramid(r) to promote healthier decisions and eating, along with the motto that “everything should be eaten in moderation”. In addition, they use their math, reading/comprehension, and communication skills in class while also being provided with background knowledge of what the are cooking. This is through food science, fact about the ingredients, or the origins and history of the recipes.
