Kids in the Kitchen – United Plates of America, 5-Day
This session is designed just for kids, ages 8-12!
Spend a week of your summer traveling through regional foods of the USA. Try new things and taste old favorites! During this 5-day, hands-on cooking camp, we’ll zigzag from Hawaii to Arizona to Wyoming to Louisiana and finish in New York. We’ll work on kitchen skills as we slice pineapple, roast tomatoes, coat chicken, cobbler peaches, boil & bake bagels and more! Along with learning regional foods, we’ll learn the historical, geographical and political influences that brought these dishes into being.
