Master Chef (Ages 9+)

Campers will gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to prepare dishes from scratch without the use of recipes


Course description

July 20 – July 24

Objective: To instill in our Masterchefs the skills, knowledge and confidence to prepare dishes from scratch without the use of recipes. After this program, our campers will have the self-confidence and skills, both in and out of the kitchen, to take on new challenges, and think creatively and critically about food. 

Our popular Masterchef challenge is back again with even more exciting recipes!  This program is all about teaching our students to think creatively about cooking, and create dishes from their hearts more than their heads.  Each day will begin with culinary theory and vibrant recipes that highlight different cooking techniques and flavour profiles. They’ll first learn the recipes and get some hands-on practice while preparing their lunch.

In the afternoon, our campers will have the chance to experiment with all the new flavours, produce and spices they’ve been exposed to and apply it to their own culinary creations. Each day will feature a different challenge that will introduce a new element of cooking. These challenges are designed to motivate our students to develop their own unique cooking style, and build their confidence in cooking without a recipe. Following this program, campers will leave with the confidence, culinary theory and practical cooking skills to create and execute their own recipes at home. 

As always, we recommend our chefs-in-training check out our safety videos and practice their knife skills before camp, so they can get the most out of the program.

The best part: here at Rooks to Cooks, we believe food is meant to be shared! At the end of each day, your chef-in-training will bring home portions of their daily creations to share with you and your family.
