Kids in the Kitchen – Taste of Italy This 5-day camp is designed for kids, ages 8 to 12. MONDAY, July 26th to FRIDAY, July 30th FROM 10:00AM – 12:00PM Join Chef Lee Baker and spend a week like you are in Italy! We’ll start off this week-long cooking camp making pasta and end it with a pizza party, making a lot of Italian favorites in between. Each class will give students instruction and practice with various skills and techniques such as using knives correctly to slice, dice and chiffonade; using the stove to simmer & sauté; using a scale to create perfect pasta dough – and how to roll, cut and fill that dough. Additionally, students will learn the advantages of planning ahead for such items as pizza dough and tiramisu.
