Recipes & Cookbook

I just want to say thank you for everything! I loved camp! My favorite recipe was of course learning to make chocolate glazes, because I love chocolate!  Seriously though I cooked so many great recipes.  I hope to go to culinary school and I came to learn more about making desserts and baking and I did!”  – Murphy, age 16, Dallas TX 


We make over 100 recipes from scratch.  We work on skills, culinary technique, and underlying concepts and apply those to the recipes of the day.  While last summer we only saw students from the US,in the past we typically have pulled from countries all over the world: Cuba, France, Italy, Indonesia, Thailand, India, China, Japan, and more.   At our culinary summer programs, we want each student to try their hand at all sorts of food, beyond what they already know, and to stretch.  Often we see students get the most satisfaction from the little things, like perfectly plating the smallest details, making a glaze, or getting a sauce just right at our pro culinary school.


We have created a fabulous 300-page Summer Culinary cookbook that is included in your tuition! At the end of camp we will send this to you! It is amazing and will keep you busy until next year!
