About this business

From Our Editors

Young Chefs Academy's seasoned and kid-minded instructors create a safe, interactive learning environment for budding epicureans ages 3–15 to develop a knowledge of food preparation in a smorgasbord of scheduled classes. In the Kindercooks program, children ages 3–5 eschew their bulb ovens and Play-Doh beef wellington recipes to learn the fundamental culinary language of the kitchen alongside their parents. Older students don puffed white hats and aprons for the Junior and Senior Chef courses, delving into monthly themes such as this October's spooky Halloween theme. Past gourmands have learned how to prepare refined alsatian quiches and homemade fudgesicles. Instructors inspire their students to think about everything involved in bringing ingredients to the table, from food preparation to kitchen safety and menu planning. Aspiring sous chefs also enhance their math, reading, and science skills as they measure out ingredients, follow recipes, and put Einstein's theory of handless spatula flipping to the test.
