What You'll Get
The seeds of chefhood blossom from the very first dashes of salt and cinnamon that grace a child's suppertime lima beans. Today's Groupon encourages the culinary spirit in the youth of today, who are the former children of tomorrow: for $15, kids ages 3 to 15 get one cooking class (a $30 value) at Young Chefs Academy in Fresno. Children can explore the flavor profiles inspired by their inner chef through interactive kitchen education that bypasses 80-watt-light-bulb baking.
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 educate a variety of age groups, with specially catered classes for the kindergarten elite and junior line cooks, combining nutritional meals with basic food-prep skills that teach how to correctly follow a recipe to edible fruition. Senior flambéists are offered advanced classes that dig deeper into kitchen secrets and hone specific skills and techniques that expand the parameters of cooking creativity. Kindercooks classes run about an hour, while junior and senior classes last about 90 minutes.
The lessons learned from early cuisine classes spark a valuable communion between a child and a stove. Imaginations stretch as they contemplate the infinite possibilities that exist among ingredients, spices, and food presentations so astute they beg to be stapled to the refrigerator door.
Young Chefs Academy has branches all over the country. Austin Citysearchers give their local academy 4.5 stars:
- My daughter had fun and learned a lot about cooking. She now fixes entire dinners for the family and bakes too! Her experience expanded her palate and even made me want to try some new food items. – Dottie60
- This is a great place for kids! My kids attend classes after school and they have so much fun!! The classes are fun and entertaining....yet the kids are engaged in non-stop learning. – tkastning

About Young Chefs Academy
"If you make it, you will taste it" is the motto founder Julie Fabing Burleson (http://gr.pn/yCWj1v) envisioned when she created Young Chefs Academy. In addition to giving youngsters hands-on exposure to culinary techniques, kitchen safety, eating etiquette, and table setting, the academy's philosophy ensures that kids like 10-year-old former veggie-hater Camille gain an appreciation for healthy homemade cuisine. With centers in more than 10 states, Young Chefs Academy enriches growing minds with engaging cooking classes, camps, and birthday parties that impart valuable life skills, such as self-reliance and how to trick a younger sibling into doing the dishes.
