Perfecting Pastries (Ages 8+)

Campers will learn advanced pastry skills and knowledge while building confidence in themselves and their abilities


Course description

August 17 – August 21

Objective: To teach our campers advanced pastry skills and knowledge while building their confidence in themselves and their abilities. Upon completing this program, our campers will understand the foundations of pastry preparation and have the skills to feel empowered to execute these recipes independently at home. 

This year we’re raising the bar in this advanced pastry program! Perfecting Pastries is designed to challenge your chef-in-training to prepare pastry recipes they wouldn’t have the opportunity to bake on their own at home. From confectionery to perfectly flaky pie crust, your child will explore all that you can create with butter, sugar, flour and everything in-between! This program will feature both sweet and savoury baking, as campers will prepare their own culinary creations for lunch every day; however, the focus will be more-so on the sweets. We will delve into the importance of science in successful baking, and we place an emphasis on teaching theory so your pastry-chef-to-be will know all the why’s behind baking thereby ensuring their continued success in the kitchen.

Despite the advanced recipes this pastry program features, we also welcome beginners to the session. After a week of hands-on practice and learning about pastry theory, they will build confidence in themselves to take on new challenges. Our experienced chefs will be there to guide and support your aspiring pastry chef through learning all the tricks of the trade.

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.
