Culinary Academy: Chopped

Instructed by Tiny Chefs

June 27th-July 1st

 

Never have food challenge reality shows been so popular and Chopped! is a favorite here at Tiny and Gourmet Chefs! We like it so much we decided to base a whole week long camp on the concept. Our version has the added twist of focusing on different cuisines every day of camp. So, each day the Tiny and Gourmet Chef campers will be presented with a basket with 3 or 4 ingredients, which reflect these different cuisines—French, Italian, Mexican, Asian and “All-American”. Using those ingredients and working within those cuisines, they will challenge themselves to make mouthwatering specialties, traditional favorites and explore new ingredients, tastes and combinations.

Culinary Academy: French Bistro

Instructed by Tiny Chefs

July 5th-July 8th  (4 days)

 

A trip to Paris anyone?  Students will learn what makes French bistro fare so revered.  They’ll master such delicacies as French onion soup, cassoulet, quiche Lorraine, apple tarts, cream puffs, and much more.  Tres bon!
