Summer Teen Cooking Academy

Event Details

This event finished on 12 July 2018

Are you a budding chef? Want to explore new tastes and techniques?

Teens with experience in the kitchen are invited to join Registered Dietitian Amy Reuter, to explore more advanced cooking knowledge and skills in this 3-part series. Learn the science of cooking as we make fresh mozzarella cheese, prepare a variety of foods to showcase the diverse roles of eggs, and explore the concept of taste using a blend of flavorings. For each session, we will experiment, make several predictions, test them out in our “kitchen lab,” and conclude with a daily tasting.

This Cooking Academy is not intended for beginning cooks – it is designed for teens ages 11-15 with experience in the kitchen. This 3-day series has been carefully planned for small groups and the instructor counts on a full class. In order to provide a quality experience for everyone, please be certain that you will be able to participate in ALL 3 days before registering.

What To Expect: In Verdant’s Summer Cooking Academy, teens work together in a fun environment led by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who can teach you how to create, prepare, and enjoy delicious, healthy foods.
