Day 1: Knife Skills Mastering the art of cooking starts with knife skills. Our instructor will walk kids through the fundamental cuts—mince, dice, brunoise, bâtonnet and julienne—and explain how proper cutting ensures even cooking and attractive presentation. Kids will get plenty of hands on practice and learn how to transform chopped produce into a variety of sweet and savory dishes.
Day 2: Measuring & Baking Math class has never been so fun or tasty! In our baking workshop, we’ll cover the importance of precise measuring, along with proper ingredient ratios and cooking temperatures. Kids will learn secrets for working with yeast and discover how simple it can be to make pizza dough from scratch. We’ll put our skills to the test by baking classic pizzas and mini calzones.
