Mid-Winter Recess Cook Like a Pro Camp
February 18-22
9am - 3pm

How to sear the perfect steak; read a recipe; prep out a meal; bake a cake from scratch. School is closed, but our kitchen is open for a special week-long immersion course designed to help kids become more confident, creative cooks. (Single-day drop-ins available but please know the program is designed to follow from Monday through Friday.)

This deep-dive distills the very best pro lessons into one delicious, info-packed week. We devote each morning to savory cooking and essential techniques: while preparing lunch, be it a classic roast chicken or a seasonal pasta (which they'll invent on the fly after a visit to the farmers' market), they'll practice knife work and learn how to taste, season and improvise.

Afternoons are all about baking, from bread doughs to pastry to cake decorating. Like all of our lessons at The Dynamite Shop, we contextualize hands-on learning by bringing in chefs and cookbook authors to share their stories. On Friday, each camper will showcase their newfound skills in a multi-course meal they’ll bring home for their family.

Camp includes lunch and snacks.
