This “Cooking Around the World” camp is for chefs ages 8-12, who have shown interest in cooking and who have had experience with chopping, peeling, measuring and helping with other kitchen tasks. During each day of camp, we will explore a specific region and cuisine and we will explore the culture and geography as well. The chefs will not need to provide a snack, as they will have 2 opportunities to taste what they made in class. They should bring a water bottle with them to stay hydrated.

You and your chef will receive:

*the recipes we prepared in camp
*an introduction to countries and the regions we “visit in camp”
*video and/or pictures of your chefs in action

We use natural, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever available, and do not use nut-based products, raw meat or shellfish. We focus on introducing the small chefs to new cuisines, tastes and the cultures representing the recipes they cook. Parents, please make sure that we are aware of any food allergies and texture avoiding issues that your children may have.

Please register using the form below and fill out all fields and provide us with your child’s name and age in the comments section. $50 required to save your spot. Registration Fee will not be refunded after June 1st. CLICK HERE to download form complete and mail with balance to New Era Creative Space (NECS), 1016 Brown Street, Peekskill NY 10566.
