Pro chefs. Pro kitchens.

Our student chefs love food and want to build their skills… and they want to explore one of our world-class host cities in the evenings with our curated tours and skilled staff.

We accept all skill levels. What is required is a love of food and a desire to learn. We take you from exactly where you are to just where you want to go! We focus on skill building like plating, sauces, glazes and knife use, and we make over 100 amazing recipes from scratch. Come see why we are the best!

We created this premier cooking camp for teens who are serious about learning to cook regardless of their skill level.

The criteria for choosing any cooking camp should be: (1) what kind of kitchen is used, (2) are the instructors actual professional chefs, and (3) how much time per day are your students in the kitchen? Our answers are professional and fully outfitted, with professional chefs, and we are in the kitchen 5-6 hours per day!

Student Testimonials

“This camp has been and always will be one of the best things I do during the summer. It is always something I look forward to and is something that I enjoy doing due to the cooking being more like it would be in a working kitchen then compared to my kitchen at my home. It allows me to grow in my knowledge and gives me the some of the tools and knowledge that I will need to go into the field of cooking. I would only miss the camp for a medical emergency or a family event, I’m not even joking, I love this camp.”

– William, age 16, Long Island, NY

“I love the fact that it felt like a real cooking camp rather than a camp that says “Today we are going to make chocolate chip cookies”. There were real skills being taught and learned.”

– Antoinnea, age 17, Bahamas

“My favorite thing was… everything!  I think it is a combination of the people, the chefs and the counselors.”

– Nicole, age 14, Chicago, IL
