If children cooked every meal, lunch would be hot dogs and dinner would be Lego helmets. Today's Groupon teaches culinary skills to the youth of today, who are the former children of tomorrow: for $25, kids ages 4–18 get $50 toward a weekly cooking class or birthday party at Young Chefs Academy in Forest Hills.
Young Chefs Academy's engaging instructors acquaint kids with the art of cooking and food presentation in motivational 90-minute classes. Kids learn lessons about kitchen etiquette and safety that teach caution when handling laser can openers and diamond-studded pasta rakes, as well as basic food-prep skills that help small hands craft nutritional meals and follow recipes. Senior flambéists are offered advanced classes that dig deeper into spicy secrets and expand the parameters of cooking creativity.
Birthday parties at Young Chef's Academy let up to 20 children express their inner Emeril with 1.5 to 2 hours of interactive, hands-on cooking. Guided by the lively staff, each youngling makes their own edible creation from scratch and learns baking basics. Young Chef's Academy handles all aspects of your sprout's soiree, from printing the invitations and preparing the gift bags to filling the balloons with cookie dough.
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.
