Kid “Chopped” Class- based on the popular TV show.
This week is all about thinking outside of the box when it comes to creating dishes. The popular TV show “Chopped” features mystery ingredients that the chefs must incorporate into their dishes. They are given time limits and are judged on creativity, presentation and taste. In previous years, our “Chopped” days have been incredibly popular so at the demand of many campers, I have put together a camp that will not only be a lot of fun, but really allow your child to be creative. We will spend the first half of the day learning new techniques, skills and recipes that they will have to use during the challenge. After a break playing with the chickens, goats and on the new nature inspired playground, the young chefs will come back into the kitchen to find mystery ingredients and a challenge to make either a dessert, dinner or appetizer. They will have access to a stocked pantry and the gardens on the property to supplement their dishes with. The young chefs will be working in teams which is fantastic for learning cooperation, respect and delegation of tasks.
Different levels of experience in the kitchen are welcome as I have found in the past that even if one doesn’t have the same skill levels with say a knife, they may be able to mix flavors in a unique way.
Respect and Kindness are my two major rules in my kitchen and I do not tolerate anyone to be treated without respect.
Food Allergies: I cannot promise to be an allergy free kitchen. Please contact me about any food allergies before registering your child and I will do my best to accommodate.
Cancellation: I cannot offer refunds after May 1st, 2018 except on a case by case basis and I will always do my very best to make everything work out.
