Cooking Round the World Summer Camps 2019

 

Cooking Round the World summer camp immerses a child in a cooking and cultural exploration. Each Cooking Round the World camp day we cook and eat 4 to 8 recipes, read a folktale, play an international/national game, observe a cooking demonstration, and learn to think critically about the foods we just cooked. In the afternoon we see a slide presentation, play a trivia game, and bake desserts. Fun and yum!

We are offering a few specialty camp weeks. Below are descriptions:

  • Harry Potter: Taste the Magic!: From butterbeer pancakes to double double chocolate cauldron cake , campers will enjoy Hogwarts culinary delights!
  • A Dish of Disney: Campers will cook, eat and have fun with Disney characters and movies: Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Matilda,  Lady and the Tramp…. More! The day includes trivia games, Disney charades, and a Disney story.
  • A Plate of Pixar: Children will enjoy a different favorite Pixar movie AND the foods mentioned in films like Ratatouille, Toy Story, Monsters Inc, and others! Kids learn awesome cooking skills through daily demos, experiment with kitchen tools. Other activities include Pixar themed games, slide shows and stories.
  • Celebrity Chefs: TV Food Network Celebrity chefs like Bobby Flay, Rachel Ray, Gordon Ramsey, Giada DeLaurentiis, and Ree Drummond all have their signature dishes. We will recreate those dishes and learn how these TV chefs became stars!
  • Pizza Mania: If your child is a pizza hound, this is the week for them! Pizza’s Round the World, at least 2 different pizzas each day! From Indian Naan bread pizza to French Benedict Pizza, to German berry dessert pizza…. Children will learn to make… and love to eat a variety of pizzas. There will be additional side dishes.
  • International Celebrations: Specialty foods and celebration practices at International Festivals: Thai Songkran Festival, Brazilian Carnival, Italy’s Feast of San Gennaro, Philippines Pahiyas Festival and German Oktoberfest.
  • Regions of China: Each Chinese region has its own unique set of recipes including different spices. Campers will explore the various cooking styles and offerings from these regions: Sichuan, Taiwan, Hunan, Shandong and Guangdong (Cantonese).
  • Regions of Italy: Each Italian regions has its own specialties. We will “visit” Campania. Emilia-Romangna, Toscana, Abruzzo, and Venetto and cook and eat dishes each region is known for. Pizzas, pasta, salads, veggies and desserts. Delizioso!
  • Cooking Round the USA: Campers will visit a different US state each day, learn about what that state is distinctly known for, and eat delicious foods associated with from that state.
