Children and aspiring chefs entering grades 5th thru 12th are invited to join Chef Cynthia Malik and staff at Central Arkansas’ premiere culinary institute. Students spend five days honing their skills by rotating through stations in the kitchen including starters, snack and breakfast, entrée, and dessert. Through these stations, they will learn knife skills, how to make soups, stocks and sauces, cooking methods, meat and seafood cookery, vegetable, fruit, bean and grain cookery, and basic baking and pastry techniques. Students will also learn the importance of cleaning and sanitizing, and will rotate through stations where they will gain basic knowledge of how to maintain a clean kitchen. Life skills such as teamwork, dependability, communication skills, organization, nutrition and leadership skills will be emphasized.

Chef’s coats and hats will be provided, along with a recipe packet including all menu items the students have prepared. Students will feast on the nutritious meals they prepare, including breakfast, snack and lunch. On the last day of camp students will invite two guests each, and prepare and serve a 3-course meal reflecting the skills they have learned throughout the week.

Students are encouraged to attend the Orientation where they will receive their chef’s coats and hats, take a tour of the kitchen, be assigned to groups and receive a brief overview of the camp.
