Savory or Pastry Concentrations:

NYC is the only Summer Culinary program with two distinct tracks: savory and pastry.


Our savory track is designed for all-around cooking, skill development, and focuses more on appetizers and entrees, with less about dessert or baking. This is for the dinner chefs of the future!

View our Savory class >

Cooking camps:  Delicious!


Our pastry or baking camp option allows for students who really want to bake, or who want to focus on pastry, get to do that literally all day. The dishes those students produce are AMAZING!

Rogue Squads in NYC Cooking Camp

We invented “Rogue Squads” so our residential kids could all get to go out and do what they want to do, within reason, and with a staffer, during the evenings. What that looks like in reality is, after the students leave the kitchen, they break up into small groups and zip to favorite NYC destinations. One group wants to go to the fancy sneaker stores in SoHo, then Shake Shack, then Times Square photo opp, then back to the dorm. Another group might hit Glossier, Brandy Melville, UO SoHo, then go for chocolate and pastries in Little Italy. The options are literally endless. Past Rogue Squads have visited basically everywhere a teen would want to go.
