The cultivated culinarians at Young Chefs Academy mold fledgling cuisine crafters into experienced 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, with kids accumulating kitchen knowledge while using professional equipment in a decked-out kitchen. December is holiday themed, and during January kids learn nutritious recipes to start the new year on the healthiest of their six feet.
Although Young Chefs Academy offers discounts for enrolling in multiple classes, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
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.
