Summer Cooking Camps are Back!

Join us for a week-long course designed for kids with a unique and exciting theme that offers hands-on participation, detailed cooking instruction and their very own notebook full of recipes to take home! Plus, every day the kids get to eat what they create! The camps will run Monday through Thursday during the months of June and July at my home in Fairfield. Your kids are invited to join the fun as I look forward to teaching them the art of cooking.

Six Flags Over Texas
June 7-10
Mon.-Thurs. 10 am-12 pm
8-12 year old

Six Flags over Texas is the slogan used to describe the six nations that had sovereignty over the current territory of the US state of Texas. We are going to take a culinary tour through Texas history and explore how the cuisine of each nation is reflected in the foods we love today. We will travel through history creating and tasting recipes from the past. We’ll include a day for pioneers, eating like cowboys on the trail, and exploring the cuisine of the French, Spanish, Mexican (even German and Czech) immigrants who influenced our current culinary tastes with dishes like homemade tortillas, kolaches and pailla. Join us for the best tasting history lesson you’ve ever had!

Sizzling Summer
July 12-15   (Please note the new date)
Mon.-Thurs. 10 am-12 pm
5-8 year olds

Summertime in Texas is HOT! So, the best recipes for summer are light, yummy and keep you cool. Sizzlin' Summer Fun will include all the elements of a great summer soiree as we make our own frozen treats, learn how to pack the perfect picnic and enjoy fun and safe ways for kids to help with the barbeque grill. A summer isn’t perfect without a day at the fair, so homemade corndogs, Belgian waffles and strawberry lemonade are sure to be included!

Manners Matter: Traveling in Style
July 19-22
Mon.-Thurs. 10 am-12 pm
8-12 year olds

Having good manners are important every day, not just when we sit down to dine at a fancy restaurant. This four-week session will focus on etiquette, setting the table and good table manners as we cook recipes that test even the neatest and most polite child!

Please don’t think this is a “stuffy, boring” class…for we will use our etiquette expertise to “travel” to exotic lands and have…high tea in England…pastries on the sidewalk cafes of Paris…fondue on the long voyage aboard the Orient Express from Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam to Turkey…and a fine dining experience at the Plaza in New York.
