Kid’s Culinary Boot Camp

July 8, 2019 @ 9:00 am - July 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm


Ages 8-13 only please.

Does your child love to cook and want to develop skills and techniques that will take his/her talent to the next level?  We have the ticket!  Sign them up for culinary boot camp at The Cookery!  4 days, 4 hours each day!  Drop them off and we will take it from there!  Throughout the week, we will teach your child basic knife skills and cutting techniques, homemade stocks, sauces and soups, meat cooking techniques, cake baking and on the final day, they will prepare and cook a gourmet meal and serve it plated for their guests – you!  On the final day of class, parents/guardians (2 per child) will be invited to see what the class has been up to all week and be able to taste the fruits of their labor! We are only taking 16 kids in this class, so be sure to sign up quick! Help fill those often dull summer days, and give them skills that will last a lifetime!  Your child will also work with a knife all week long that they get to keep and take home with them at the end of the week!  How fun!  We will also feed your child a small lunch that they will prepare each day.

Students must wear closed-toed shoes and pants to class every day.  Students will be given their own knives to work with and keep after boot camp is over!  We will also provide aprons to use all week.  We will have bottled water to drink, but students may bring beverages of their choice to class as well.

Please indicate the age of your child (children) in the comment sections so we can make sure that their recipes are age appropriate. Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring your favorite knife and a beverage to drink if you wish. We will provide knives if you do not have them. We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink.

Our classes are popular and often sell out!  You must cancel your registration at least 14 days in advance to receive a full refund for this class.  There will be a processing fee to cancel your ticket per person no matter when you cancel. You can cancel by calling the school at 309-263-6020 or by emailing us your request to cancel at amanda@thecookeryinc.com.  Tickets cancelled the week prior or less before the first day of class will not receive a refund.
