What Makes Kitchen Kid Signature Camps Unique:
- Farmers Market Challenge (Santa Monica and Hermosa Beach) and Mystery Basket Challenge (Beverly Hills and Pasadena): Kitchen Kids learn about seasonal ingredients and “farm to fork” eating. In Santa Monica and Hermosa Beach, young chefs head to the market in small groups led by a culinary coach to shop for the freshest produce available. In Beverly Hills and Pasadena, our culinary coaches lead a discussion and delicious tasting of in-season fruits and vegetables. Afterwards, in all camps, chefs enjoy a secret ingredient cook-off!
- Cooking for the Common Good: Kitchen Kids experience the joy of cooking for others when they bake and package cookies, which are then delivered to a local food pantry.
- Around the Table Fridays: Parents are invited to join us for an incredible tasting on Fridays. Witness and taste your child’s delicious accomplishments first hand!
