Summer workshops for young chefs

By MST Lifestyle | Mar. 05, 2014 at 07:01pm

This summer, let the children “feed” their mind  – that is, to let them take in charge of their own kitchen learning adventures at the Center for Culinary Arts, Manila, as the country’s premier institution opens its doors for inquisitive epicurean minds with its Young Chefs Boot Camp.

 The YCBC, an existing summer program of CCA Manila which started over 10 years ago, is a series of cooking classes designed for young culinary enthusiasts, from age 5 to 16 years old.  It offers participants the opportunity and the fun of practical hands-on learning, including valuable insights on food, kitchen safety, and preparation. Classes officially begin on March 24 until May 26, 2014.

Immersive ‘reinvented’ programs

What participants for this year’s summer boot camp can look forward to, according to chef Melissa Sison, program director of CCA, Manila is the reinvention of the lineup of recipes across all programs. This, she explains, not only “freshens up” but more importantly “opens up” varied learning avenues as they apply actual kitchen practices beyond the classroom experience.

“We changed the recipes because times have changed. Children who are interested in cooking can search on the Web site on a favorite recipe or simply watch TV. So, we developed recipes that are more ‘in tune’ with the trends and are fun to cook with their friends. The recipes will allow the participants to use their creativity in developing the recipes further.”

The YCBC age-specific cooking programs are classified under the following categories: Junior Culinary & Baking Essentials for  tweens and teens who are serious in taking up a culinary degree for college, as this class provides an extensive glimpse of  the culinary and baking world;  Cooking my Way through Asia (7-16 years old) wherein learners get to master various flavors of Region,  from the trendy Korean Pop to the sacred Thai Cuisine;  My Ultimate Comfort Foods (7-16 years old) for easy-to-prepare meals and snacks;  Baking 101 (7-16 years old) for beginners who love to know more about their favorite oven-made goodies; and for the youngest set,  the Little Chef program (6-9 years old).

To ensure best individual learning outcomes, participants will be using safe, state-of-the-art, kid-friendly kitchen stations on a two to four pax per group ratio, complete with facilities such as induction ovens to prevent burns, and professional chef instructors for focused supervision. Apart from full hands-on experiences and recipe hand-outs per session, the program is inclusive of kitchen utilities like aprons, toques, side towels and certificates which will be awarded via a mini graduation upon completion of the program.

For inquiries on the Young Chefs Boot Camp and other diploma or short courses, call CCA, Manila at 426-4840 or e-mail: talktoccamanila@gmail.com. Visit their Web site at ccamanila.com.  CCA, Manila campus is located at 287 Katipunan Ave., Loyola Heights, Quezon City. Application is ongoing.
