COOK! Programs are creative and challenging culinary courses for kids ages 9 - 18. Held primarily in the summer, in the Paulding & Company kitchen in Emeryville, the camps offer diverse training in everything from basic cooking skills to specialized cuisines, to kitchen science and more. These hands-on classes are designed to give kids the confidence and skills they need to cook for themselves, for friends, and for their families. COOK! promotes the understanding that life is more colorful, more fragrant, and simply more interesting when you cook.
