Gibson School of the Arts Jr. Chef Program has two main objectives: to help kids learn beginning cooking principles and techniques, and to ensure they have fun doing it. Students will work in groups and get hands on experience in a lively and organized atmosphere. A boost of self confidence will be felt each day when students complete their recipes that will in turn ignite a passion for pleasing others with their creations.
Gibson School of the Arts Jr. Chef Program is in development. A variety of different culinary courses involving themes and focused skill sets are in the works. The 'Cooking 101' course is recommended before taking other courses within the program. New courses involving new skills and various culinary themes are always in development so keep checking the website for what is coming up next!
Cooking 201 - Kitchen Basics
The 'Cooking 201' course is a first step in opening up the world of the Culinary Arts for students at the Gibson School of the Arts. While preparing fun recipes, students will learn how to work safely in a kitchen while acquiring skills in following a recipe and basic measurement.
Every child should have the opportunity to get into the kitchen and cook. Cooking is a valuable life skill that sets us up for healthy eating habits and helps to foster their creativity. This class is all about letting kids taste, smell and explore ingredients. Often in a safe, new environment even the pickiest of eaters will explore and try new foods. Both cooking and baking will be taught in this class.
