May 30th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Alan Doherty and his team at ChefStart will again hold their Summer Camp hands-on cooking program for kids ages 8-14.

Every week, a different cuisine is the focus. Students will cook appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts from Italy, the Mediterrean, and beyond. They’ll compile a recipe book, and bring home ideas to expand on the techniques they learn by doing – and eating.

They learn to identify ingredients and navigate a kitchen, plan, cook and serve an entire meal.

Professional chefs are the teachers for the six hour class weekdays.

Classes are $265 per week, with discounts for additional children. Weekly camp classes begin June 6.

For information and registration, go to their website.

    What a great idea! I started out with weiners over a gas range followed by grilled cheese sandwiches and French toast at about age 10. By the time I was 16 I was making gumbo, jambalaya and Cajun spaghetti. My dad taught me all about grilling when I was a teen. I still love to cook.

    Cooking gives kids confidence, teaches them so much (science, math figure in heavily), and gives them a skill they’ll use the rest of their lives. It’s SO worth it – and to learn safely, from pros, in a camp setting is just great!
