Join Francesca Montillo, cookbook author and culinary instructor for a 6-week summer cooking camp! Held over Zoom, we will meet weekly on Wednesday afternoons at 5:00PM EST to cook and learn together in an open, interactive virtual environment! Open to children 9 years of age and above, the classes will be fun, educational, interactive and delicious! Parents are encouraged to participate, particularly with children 9 – 11 years of age and to assist as needed.
Build confidence in the kitchen, and beyond, while socializing with other children in a fun and creative virtual environment. Children will learn valuable culinary skills, new recipe ideas, and broaden their taste buds with our fun, hands-on classes. Participants will learn about ingredients and where their food comes from, how to follow a recipe, promoting kitchen safety, arranging the workspace for maximum success, and other techniques and skills that will be valuable for years to come. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions as we cook along.
Recipes and shopping list will be sent one week prior to class. The lessons are straightforward and designed to empower students in the kitchen and to even assist parents during cooking time. In the event that you miss a class, they are recorded and participants will receive the recording within 48 hours. Each week’s menu will deliver a full meal that can easily serve a family of 4. In addition to the main course, we will also prepare an appetizer or salad to go along with dinner!
