Kid’s Culinary Boot Camp

July 27, 2020 @ 9:00 am - July 30, 2020 @ 1:00 pm


Sold out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We will do a baking bootcamp this fall break and another summer bootcamp next summer!!

Does your child love to cook and want to develop skills and techniques that will take their 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; just drop them off and we will take it from there!  Throughout the week, we will teach your child a variety of skills and techniques to give them a well-rounded education.  On day one, we will focus on Knife Skills, and they will use them to create a variety of Salads and Salsas. On day two, we’ll whip up sweet creations in the form of Gourmet Cookies and Whoopie Pies. On day three, the kiddos will have a chance to make a stone fired pizza, including homemade crust, sauce, and toppings!  On the final day of class, parents/guardians (1 per child so that we can properly socially distance) will get to see what the class has been up to all week and be able to taste the fruits of their labor! We will send a box home with each child so that you can try their creations!  (We have changed this since the year’s past so that we may keep our numbers low inside of the building).  We are only taking 16 kids in this class, so be sure to sign up quickly! 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 lunch that they will prepare each day.  Your child must wear a mask all day for class.  All adults must also wear a mask when entering the building.

Please feed your child breakfast before sending them to boot camp.  We will not have lunch until 11:30 or Noon each day and we do not want them going so long on an empty tummy. On the final day of class, your child will be done at Noon and ready for pickup.  We will pack a box for him/her to go from the buffet of foods that they created all week, which will serve as the sample box for you and lunch as well for them.  Please plan to feed your child lunch on the final day (Thursday) either from the box we send or on your own.  We will not give your child a lunch during their time at The Cookery on Thursday, but we will Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are asking all students to wear a mask to class. We will be taking temperatures at the door, as well as providing hand sanitizer upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home. You may call to cancel your ticket, and we will issue a credit to be used on a future class. Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever.

Please indicate the age of your child (children) in the comment sections so we can make sure that their recipes are age appropriate. Students will be given their own knives to work with all week and keep after boot camp is over!  Knives are brand new and therefore will be super sharp!  Please be careful! Please have your child wear closed-toed shoes and wear hair up off your shoulders.  We will also provide aprons but your child may wear their own if they wish. We will have filtered water to drink but we prefer that they bring their own water bottle from home.

You must cancel your registration at least 5 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 thecookeryinc@gmail.com.  Tickets canceled the day before class begins or after classes have already started will not receive a refund.  If your child does not return after day one (due to illness or other reasons) you will not receive a refund (we are unable to re-sell your ticket at that point).

If you reserved your spot with a gift card and do not show, you will forfeit the amount owed for the class from your gift card.
