From time to time friends and neighbors will ask me if I teach cooking, specifically if I can teach their kids to cook. I've toss around the idea of doing small groups in my home, because I think it would be a lot of fun for me and for the kids, but I've always decided against it for legal reasons. Today I got a email from one of the local make-and-take places promoting their summer camps for kids.
Dream Dinners, between Arapahoe and Dry Creek on Yosemite, is offering classes between June 22 and August 7, each session is Monday through Friday and kids are grouped by ages. The promo contends that youth will learn the basics of kitchen safety, proper food handling, food prep, following a recipe, components and presentation of a meal, nutrition and portion size, table etiquette, and mise en place. Cost is $295 for a week of three-hour sessions. Contact them at 720-200-3558.
