Becky’s Kitchen at The Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center will be offering summer Jr. Chef Camps for young food enthusiasts ages 7-14. In addition to preparing a varied menu each week, the Jr. Chefs will be taught kitchen safety, knife skills (age appropriate), a variety of food preparation techniques, table setting and service, dining etiquette, and proper cleaning of the kitchen. Parents are invited to dine with students the last day (Friday) of each session with a reservation and a lunch fee of $5.00 per guest (max of 2 guests). There is a minimum/maximum on class attendees of 7/14. All camps include a 9- 12 PM session and 1- 4 PM session for each.

For Ages: 7- 14

Throughout the duration of the week, the Jr. Chefs will learn the basic methods of baking including the biscuit method, the muffin method, and the creaming method. They will then use these methods to make items such as cookies, pies, quick breads, and tarts.
