All you knead is love this Monday. When school is closed, we’re open – join us for some hands-on culinary fun in kitchen or online.
Learn to bake like the pros as we master the technique for kneading the perfect bread for our delicious Chocolate Babka, savory Flatbread, and yummy Garlic Knots. Your chefs will learn a new baking skill, and what kneading does to the texture of your dough. They will come home ready to perfect their techniques. And like all our offerings, we’ll whip up both savory and sweet recipes to keep your chefs cheering! This camp is drop-off.
We’re excited to launch a robust online version of our signature cooking camps using LIVE, interactive Zoom lessons. Designed to provide children ages 6 to 15 the opportunity to gather together from the comforts of home as we have fun together in the Kitchen.
