Cleveland State Offers Culinary Camp June 2-6 For Kids

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Cleveland State Community College is offering its first of two Culinary Arts Camps, June 2-6 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Cleveland High School. 

Participants will learn culinary arts by discovering the chemistry, methodology, and cooking styles that create great food. In one week participants will plan and prepare a wide variety of meals, learn various prep and cooking techniques, practice food safety, determine a budget, and serve a complete made-from-scratch meal.  

The course will be taught by a professional chef with over 30 years of experience in the industry.  The cost is $215 for the week of all day camp, which includes a chef hat, apron, lunch and two snacks per day, and materials.  

During the Main Course Camp, the child will learn cutting and knife techniques, food sanitation and equipment safety, cooking methods (breading, seasoning, sauté, stewing, frying, baking), pairing of foods and flavors, food preparation and presentation and vinaigrette and sauce creation.

At the end of the camp week, parents will come to a lunch prepared and served by their child. Space is limited. Register at mycs.cc/stem or call 614-8793 to speak to a STEM camp representative.
