What's Included

Think baking is hard? Afraid to cook without a recipe? Chef and author Michael Ruhlman has some simple-but-profound advice: Start thinking about cooking in terms of ratios. In this camp we'll be using Chef Ruhlman's cookbook Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking as a guide to learning how to cook without recipes and gain confidence in the kitchen. Over the course of the week camp director Christine Prisk will guide young chefs through understanding the ratios for a variety of doughs, batters, stocks, sauces and custards. In the afternoons we'll explore options with juicing, raw vegetables, and nutritious, no-cook foods. We will be working with known allergens including nuts, wheat, soy and dairy, and cooking with chicken, pork and beef. Please consider how this may impact your child's camp experience before registering for this camp. Director: Christine Prisk
