"If you make it, you will taste it" is the motto founder Julie Fabing Burleson (http://gr.pn/yCWj1v) envisioned when she created Young Chefs Academy. In addition to giving youngsters hands-on exposure to culinary techniques, kitchen safety, eating etiquette, and table setting, the academy's philosophy ensures that kids like 10-year-old former veggie-hater Camille gain an appreciation for healthy homemade cuisine. With centers in more than 10 states, Young Chefs Academy enriches growing minds with engaging cooking classes, camps, and birthday parties that impart valuable life skills, such as self-reliance and how to trick a younger sibling into doing the dishes.
Danny Douglas, featured in the Santa Barbara Independent and boasting both a culinary degree and a decade of experience, passes on his kitchen know-how during three-hour cooking classes using local, seasonable cuisine. Novice spatula wielders mingle with fellow students and sip on home-brought beverages as the expert culinarian teaches them how to craft a four-course meal as fresh and elegant as Grandmaster Flash at the opera. An in-season and locally caught seafood dish stars in the tongue-pleasing production alongside locally harvested produce and humanely raised meats. The communal cooking experience bonds couples closer together while solidifying friendships through the art of crafting consumables and dining together on meals on a white tablecloth. Those more interested in letting a chef cook for them may apply their Groupon toward Danny Douglas' catering services.

Now, Stan makes his own rules while dishing out falafel, kebabs, and gyros named Best Greek Food two years running by SantaBarbara.com. After sopping up creamy hummus with fresh pita bread, guests have Nick whip up a chicken breast with thyme and lemon while he chatters in Greek.
