Central Market Kids' Summer Camps #Austin #Texas

Looking for something fun, exciting, and educational for your children to do this summer? Central Market is holding a series of summer cooking camps for kids who are really into food. The camps, appropriate for ages 5-13, will turn campers into future chefs by focusing on taste, skills and teamwork in three sessions: Cooking Basics, World of Flavors and Restaurant Week. Campers will work hands-on in the kitchen with CM’s professional staff and learn important basic cooking techniques. These fun and informative sessions provide an excellent learning opportunity for kids who are interested in the food scene.

The Cooking Basics camp will set children on the pathway to becoming accomplished cooks with fun and age-appropriate cooking activities. For example, ages 5 to 7 will focus on safely handling a knife, as they cut soft produce with special plastic knives. Ages 8 to 12 will practice cutting firmer fruits and vegetables with ceramic knives and paring knives.

In the World of Flavors camp, young aspiring chefs will sample some of the world’s great cuisines and create authentic recipes that they can cook at home. Kids will also learn about the flavor profiles of these distinctive cuisines and how they come together to create a whole new, Creole, flavor.

Finally, young chefs will put their new skills to the test in the Restaurant Week camp. Kids will get a taste of how restaurants work from experienced professionals. Each day campers will build on their plan to transform CM’s Cooking School into a dining room, as they create a menu, perfect the recipes and plan all the aspects of serving a dinner at CM Kids’ Camp Pop-Up Restaurant. Days 1-3, CM’s young cooks will also make a simple meal together (referred to in the restaurant business as “family meal”). On Day 4, kids will serve their Pop-up menu to friends and family (reservations only, please).
