Sweet and Savoury Jr. (Ages 6 - 9)
Campers will learn both pastry and cooking skills through the preparation of both savoury and sweet recipes
July 13 – July 17
Objective: To teach our campers both pastry and cooking skills, along with the culinary theory and knowledge to build their self-confidence both in and out of the kitchen. Upon completing the program, students will be empowered and excited to execute both sweet & savoury recipes at home, and have the skills necessary to help cook dinner.
Can’t decide between a sweet snack or a savoury treat? With our Sweet & Savoury program, there’s no need to choose a side. During the week, your multi-talented chef-in-training will learn fundamental cooking and baking techniques, proper knife skills, diverse cooking methods including how to utilize a wide range of plant-based proteins, and the value of teamwork in the kitchen. Each day they will prepare delicious and nutritious savoury dishes which will become their lunch, followed by pastry recipes of escalating difficulty to finish. If your fanatic foodie has an interest in both the culinary and pastry arts, then this is the session for them. Following their participation, not only will they have gained practical cooking and baking skills, they will also leave with an appreciation for vegetarian cuisine, the knowledge on how to work with a wide range of plant-based ingredients and know how to incorporate these alternative proteins into their meals at home.

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.
Our Sweet and Savoury Jr. program is well-suited for aspiring chefs ages 6-9. We do recommend that first-time campers and/or beginners practice their knife skills and ability to read and execute recipes prior to camp to best prepare them for the tasty tasks at hand. Regardless, we welcome beginners with open arms as our team of chefs will be there to help guide and support them throughout their time with us.
