A Little Yumminess Around the World - A Culinary Adventure Summer Camp (Session 1)
We're going traveling with our tummies as our tour guides! From India to Mexico to Scandinavia, our 1-week cooking and writing camp will take a tour of some of the tastiest cuisines around the world, focusing on a different cuisine or country each day. Campers will transport themselves from San Francisco to places far away through a variety of engaging cooking and writing projects:
* On our cooking-focused days we'll taste interesting ingredients from around the world and learn and practice a variety of basic cooking skills while cooking global recipes that we will enjoy together at snack and lunch time.
* On our writing-focused days, we'll wash our hands, pick up our pens and spend time writing about food through a variety of exercises from poetry to restaurant reviews to tasting journals.
Parents: Save the date for a party the last day of each camp session. Join us for nibbles and a reading by our campers.
