Is your junior chef itching for a challenge in the kitchen? They’ll feel like a Food Network star competing on their own version of Chopped! Junior at our newest summer camp. Each day will reveal 4 “mystery” ingredients that our young chefs will need to incorporate as they work together in small teams with rotating jobs to create appetizer, entree and dessert courses. Instructors will teach from a curriculum that gets progressively more challenging as the week goes on. The final day of camp culminates with student teams assigning “mystery” ingredients to their peers, upping the X-factor for what’s on the menu that day as they put their new skills to the test!
Never have food challenge reality shows been so popular and Chopped! is a favorite here at Tiny Chefs! We like it so much we decided to base a whole week long camp on the concept. Our version has the added twist of focusing on different cuisines every day of camp. So, each day the Tiny Chef campers will be presented with 3 or 4 ingredients, which reflect these different cuisines—French, Italian, Mexican, Asian and “All-American”. Using those ingredients and working within those cuisines, they will challenge themselves to make mouthwatering specialties, traditional favorites and explore new ingredients, tastes and combinations.
