Blue Ribbon Cooking
World-class Culinary Summer Camps | 2023
2023 Summer Camps - Limited Space Available!
Blue Ribbon Cooking, located in the heart of Seattle, offers world-class culinary summer camps for beginner to advanced students from 4 to 17 years old. With the guidance of our professional chef instructors, students learn how to work safely in the kitchen with confidence and independence. Choose from a variety of camp sessions including: Classic Culinary, Tour of Italy, Comprehensive Baking, Advanced Culinary, and Pre-Camp!
Camp mornings will be spent learning to craft a fresh and nutritious full meal, including, but not limited to, sauce making, working with different proteins, homemade pasta, and sushi rolling. The afternoons will be focused on traditional baking techniques. This will include a variety of both savory and sweet recipes, including homemade bread, farmer’s market quiches, cookies, cakes, and so much more. As their graduation project, on Thursday your camper will bring home dinner for four people, which they will be so proud to share!
Tour of Italy:
Join Blue Ribbon for this exciting new camp that will take your tastebuds on a tour of all the wonderful cuisine Italy has to offer. The entire week will focus on Italy’s delicious foods and culinary history—from fresh pasta, sauces, risotto, pizza, polenta, gnocchi, and more. As their graduation project, on Thursday your camper will also bring home an Italian dinner for four people, which they will be so proud to share!
Are you looking for the next frontier in baking? Learn how to bake from scratch! Grab a rolling pin and put on an apron! We’re going to be sifting, whisking, kneading, mixing, and measuring as we bake savory and sweet creations from scratch. Create flaky pie crusts, yeasted doughs, cake decorations, and much more! The highlight of this comprehensive week is our Thursday iron chef dessert competition when students create their dessert masterpieces. Students bring home samples of their work throughout the week to share with family and friends.
Students that have attended a Blue Ribbon summer camp, or the equivalent, can join us for an advanced course in cooking. This class will springboard off our basic culinary camp and explore advanced techniques and skills. Learn traditional French methods and modern culinary practices. Savory and sweet dishes will be elevated to new levels in this creative and fun culinary class.
Learning to bring your family together with nutritional meals can start at any age. Through hands-on participation, students will be introduced to commonly used kitchen tools and proper methods of kitchen safety. Open to ages 4-7 years old.
