Little did we know that select locations of Sur la Table
, a purveyor of fine equipment for casual home chefs and professional chefs, offer Summer Cooking Camps
for children ages eight to 18. Camps offer opportunities for kids to master kitchen fundamentals, get hands-on experience, explore and experiment with global cuisines, learn from experts, and eat their creations. Perhaps the biggest benefit of these camps goes to the parents, though, since they get a new kitchen helper out of the experience! The week-long camps run during select weeks from June through August. Check the store's calendar
for dates and prices. Please note, the well-organized sessions are limited to a small group of children and tend to fill up quickly.
And since nothing inspires cooking like new gadgets for the kitchen, families can check out the store's junior chef selection, which includes pint-sized baking and cookware sets, child-size aprons, tea party sets, and other goodies for the young gourmet.
