Kid's Cooking Camps

For Kids Ages 8-12

Simple Gourmet Kids Parties begin with each child decorating their own paper chef hat, and then they break into teams to prepare one of our child-friendly menus. When the children are finished with their complete culinary experience, they will enjoy eating the meal which they have created. Every child leaves with a packet of recipes so they can test out their new skills at home. Parties are approximately 2 hours in length.

COOK LIKE A CHEF

CAKE DECORATING


Creativity is the key to success in our Cake Decorating party. After a brief introduction to cake-building mechanics, frosting and piping techniques from your Simple Gourmet chef, you will split into teams of 2 to build confectionary masterpieces. Each team will be given a number of baked and cooled cakes, frosting, coloring, cake fillings, piping bags and tips and other décor items. After coming up with a theme for the cake, each team will work together to build a multi-level cake, complete with filling, frosting and decoration. Simple Gourmet staff will be on hand to offer advice and expertise. We are happy to provide a meal for an additional fee, upon request.
