The Science of Cooking for Teens
All week we’ll engage teens in essential fundamentals such as basic knife skills, following a recipe, monitoring cooking temperatures and times, and kitchen safety. But best of all, we’ll get into the scientific details of cooking: the importance of specific amounts of ingredients and cooking times, and wild ideas such as how yeast reacts to sugar and warmth or how oil and eggs emulsify and why. Along the way, teens will learn the science behind creating great food they’ll love to eat and share with family and friends.
Classes run about two hours each and last for five consecutive days. Share your love of cooking with teens by giving them a foundation that will benefit them for a lifetime with an experience they’ll never forget. At the end of camp, each teen chef will take home a packet of the recipes they made and their own Sur La Table apron. Teens age 13-17 are welcome to join.
Please note: Classes are only available as a five-day series, no single day enrollments.
