The four-day classes offer a fun and hands-on opportunity for kids of various ages to learn the cooking basics. Each camp is broken up into age groups, and in each two-and-a-half-hour class, the kid-friendly staff will teach young chefs how to make a full meal from scratch. The three-students-to-one-staff-member ratio allows for personalized attention as tykes and teens turn out such sophisticated fare as sushi rolls or carne asada tacos using real ingredients, while mastering safety techniques, basic knife skills, and healthy-eating essentials. This Groupon is also good for a 10% discount on merchandise (excluding appliances) on the first day your child comes to camp. Call ahead to reserve your spot.
