The seeds of chefhood blossom from the very first dashes of salt and cinnamon that grace a child's suppertime lima beans. Encourage a youthful culinary spirit with today's Groupon: for $25, kids ages 3–18 get $50 worth of cooking classes at Young Chefs Academy. Choose between the following locations: Sandy Springs or Emory. This Groupon may be applied toward cooking camps, Fun Paks, or birthday parties.
Young Chefs Academy provides a fun, safe, and motivating environment for kids to become acquainted with the art of food and food presentation. Engaging chef instructors instill lessons of kitchen etiquette and safety in youngsters growing up in a world full of laser can openers and sharp pasta rakes, giving children a capable handle on their surroundings as they journey into the land of food. Classes ($25–$35 each) educate a variety of age groups, with specially catered sessions for the kindercooks and junior chefs, combining nutritional meals with basic food-prep skills that teach how to correctly follow a recipe to edible fruition. Senior chefs can partake in advanced classes that dig deeper into kitchen secrets and hone specific skills and techniques that expand the parameters of cooking creativity, creating presentations so astute they beg to be stapled to the refrigerator door.
This Groupon can also be used toward one of the academy's themed four-day cooking camps ($185+ in Sandy Springs, $155+ in Emory), which keep budding spatula hands busy during summer months, Fun Paks of any five classes over a three-month span ($150), or a birthday party package ($275+), which sweetens celebrations with personalized invitations, decorations, and completely edible hovercrafts.
