Does your child love to cook, bake, create or experiment in the kitchen? Do they dream about becoming a chef or owning their own restaurant? Our Kids in the Kitchen Summer Cooking Camp will take them on a fun, food-filled journey where Chef Ada Chandler will teach them how to develop a budget, buy local ingredients, create recipes, build a menu, and master new cooking techniques.  Campers will work together to create their own farm-to-table restaurant concept!

This is a hands-on cooking camp where campers will shop the Easton Public Market Farmstand for ingredients and learn various cooking techniques. They’ll meet with local farmers and food purveyors to gain a deeper understanding of farm-to-table cooking.  And even meet with a local chef and artist to brainstorm their restaurant design and concept. As they move toward developing their own restaurant, campers will work with their peers to come up with their own restaurant name and logo and learn how to properly dress a table. Each day, campers will create two to three dishes that will develop into a 4 course meal by the end of the week.  On the final day, campers will set the tables and serve a meal in their newly created restaurant!

Kids will get to taste and enjoy everything they cook each day, and there will be leftovers to take home too.

Registration fee includes: A chef hat and apron, measuring cups, measuring spoons, a rolling pin, recipe packet, Kids in the Kitchen Cooking Camp t-shirt and a canvas bag.

Camps will be held Monday thru Friday from 9am to 12 noon for the Lil’ Chefs session (maximum 12 children) and 2pm to 5pm for the Teen Chefs session (maximum 14 children).   Campers are organized into two age groups so all children team up with their peers.
