About This Class

Calling all teen cooks, amateur food whizzes, and interested beginners! Step away from the cooking shows and create your own kitchen magic. San Francisco Cooking School’s Kids Camps have all the right ingredients for a perfect summer week.

Our Kids World Cooking Camp is aimed at mature kids, ages 12-14, who are passionate in the kitchen and hungry to learn more about all aspects of cuisines of the world.  The camp is designed to make sure your kids learn the basics through a completely hands-on experience. Each day focuses on a food from a different country with step by step recipes, many variations, and lots of tips for the pros.  Your kids will prepare (and enjoy) an internationally inspired multi-course lunch every day.

By the end of the week your kids will be comfortable with ingredients and dishes inspired by Northern California, Southeast Asia, Mexico, Italy, and France. Where better to learn the basics of making amazing pastries than in the professional kitchen of San Francisco Cooking School?

This week of camp is a great companion to our Kids Cooking Camp and Kids Pastry Camp, and remember that camp makes a great holiday gift.

FAQ

What is the format of a typical cooking class?

The average duration of our cooking classes is 4 hours, and they are broken down into three segments: Introductory lecture or demo, hands-on cooking, and eating.

The class will begin with a short discussion or demo from your instructor. After, you can expect to work either on a team or individually to prepare the class menu. As a group, your class will prepare the selected menu in its entirety. In most classes, not every student will make every dish.

Learning happens throughout the class, and your instructor will often call out key techniques as they happen in each recipe.

Most classes conclude by sitting down as a group to eat what you’ve prepared, followed by a discussion of each recipe. You will leave with a copy of the recipe packet and a working knowledge of every dish that was made so you can recreate them at home.

When should I arrive for my class?

Doors open 15 minutes before the class start time.

What do I need to bring with me to class?

You do not need to bring anything with you to class, unless otherwise noted in the class description. The kitchens at SFCS are fully equipped and aprons, recipes, equipment, food and wine are all provided for you. 

Do I need to eat before class?

In most classes, you will be sitting down to eat a complete meal that you have prepared along with your classmates. Since this typically occurs towards the end of the class period, an appetizer or small plate is usually prepared early on in class. However, you’re welcome to additionally have a snack before you arrive or bring one with you.

Please note, for our Baking & Pastry classes, a light meal will be provided for you.

What should I wear to class?

We suggest wearing casual clothing you can easily move around in, and highly recommend wearing comfortable closed-toe shoes. Long hair should be pulled back.
