Founded by Bibi Kasrai, Harvard Cookin' Girl's team combines a love of cooking with a passion for healthy eating to instruct kids during summer cooking camps, which have reaped notice from NBC San Diego. Hoping to empower youth to improve their lives and that of their families' through nutrition, participants are motivated to explore the kitchen by making such ambrosial masterpieces as pesto pasta, zucchini pancakes, and smoothies. Each weeklong session varies by theme, such as under the sea and tropical week to expose mini-chefs to multiple interests. The culinary camp also includes yoga to focus on overall health, arts and crafts to further captivate imaginations, and freedom from parents to allow kids to mastermind plans for federally subsidized cotton-candy farms. The Harvard Cookin' Girl's bright-green-and-orange studio is furnished with an open kitchen area and plentiful counter space, so all participants can watch and learn as the culinary conjurers whip up tasty treats.
Chicago's Finest Cuisine packs a menu full of edibles inspired by Chicago, including Vienna Beef dogs, deep-dish pizzas with cornmeal crusts, and made-from-scratch bagels.

An authentic Chicago grilled skirt-steak sandwich with homemade fries ($6.99) convinces lunchers to linger and bellies to stop jabbering just to get attention. With more than 20 types of bagels made fresh daily, as well as muffins, omelettes, and cereals, breakfasters can also pop in to scare away a bad case of the morning-time hungries.
