The epicureans at Young Chefs Academy mold gastronomic artists with fun cooking classes for kids aged 4–18. Students learn the essentials of proper food handling, as well as preparation and kitchen-safety tips such as how to avoid spork fights. Like an indecisive chameleon, classes have a new theme each month and new recipes each week, where kids accumulate knowledge while using professional equipment in a decked-out kitchen. April focuses on re-inventing breakfast, and during May, kids learn recipes to whip up for their moms on Mother's Day.
Young Chefs Academy
The recipe for a successful cooking class requires the right mix of teacher, chef, and nutritionist—a balance that each instructor strikes at Young Chef Academy. They host students aged 4–18 in weekly cooking classes which regularly change recipes while sticking to the monthly theme. They cater to individual children, school field trips, and even scout troops. They even teach kids how to make their own treats during birthday parties, such as birthday cakes that come out of the oven already on fire and ready to be blown out.
