While this course stands on its own, it will build on the techniques taught in Top Chef Academy I. Participants will gain experience in egg, vegetable, and seafood cookery, while also learning how to roast. New skills will be put to the test as participants create and prepare a meal for the restaurant simulation on day 4. Class size is limited to 12 participants. The focus of these classes will be on your young chef mastering the skills and techniques necessary to be proficient in the kitchen. Each class will focus on a specific set of skills that will build on each other throughout the course. Day 4 of each class will be a restaurant simulation where students will be in charge of creating and preparing a menu of their choice from the skills they’ve acquired during the week. We invite parents to attend the last 30 minutes of this final class to enjoy tasting the food that has been prepared and see our awards ceremony. While each weeklong Escoffier’s Young Chefs class will complement the other, the classes can be taken on their own. Included in the price of the class will be a chef hat and jacket for each young adult to be used during classes and to take home with them at the end of the week. Each young adult also receives a booklet with all of the recipes on the last day. Price is $260.00 per child.Return to event list.
